Access Sanctuary Point

This petition had 323 supporters

Sanctuary Point community members struggle to move around our local streets where there are no footpaths.  People with mobility issues, disabilities, wheelchairs, the elderly, vision impairments and parents with prams and young children are all forced to walk along tricky terrain or along the edge of broken roads whenever they leave home. This creates a huge risk to the pedestrians as well a hazard for cars and traffic. For our many residents do not have car transport, safe footpaths and walkways can mean the difference between being able to access shops and community areas or being isolated at home.

Stacey, a single mum of 4 kids, three of whom have a disability, is driving the charge for change for all people to have good, safe pedestrian access to all areas of Sanctuary Point. Stacey, who can often be spotted pushing her daughter Olivia in her bright pink mobility wheelchair around Sanctuary Point, wants all our residents to be able to get around smoothly and safely.  Often Stacey and Olivia need to walk along roads, negotiate around puddles, mud and potholes to get from home up to the shops or to get her kids to and from school. 

Our lack of community footpaths effect the lives of so many local people who need to walk to get to the shops, bus stops or community places. Join our campaign to support safe and equitable access for ALL our community members- young families with prams, toddlers and young children, the elderly, people with disabilities or mobility issues.

For fair and safe access for all our community members we ask for:

*A safe and thorough network of footpaths through Sanctuary Point from residential streets to shops, parks and public transport access points.
