MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire Council has assured residents not to be concerned if they come across asset inspectors using cameras to film the streets.
During a month-long assessment of the shire’s 690km network of footpaths, contractors will ride small quad bike-style vehicles with cameras attached, travelling at walking pace. The cameras are filming the footpath structure only and will not record any commercial, residential or private property.
The assessment is expected to be completed by mid to late November.
The findings from the assessments will give the council information about the condition of footpaths to help it maintain the network of footpaths more effectively.
Anyone can provide feedback on the draft Pedestrian Access Strategy 2023 to help determine which footpaths receive priority, and when.
Community consultation is open until 27 October at mornpen.vic.gov.au/footpaths
