The Shire of Manjimup constructs footpaths on a priority basis. This is determined through the consideration of a number of criteria, including the distance from schools, shops and recreation centres, traffic volumes and housing density.
To assist pedestrians, residents are requested to ensure that any branches from trees and shrubs are prevented from growing over footpaths from private property or the adjacent verge. Please prune them regularly.
The Shire has implemented a scheduled annual/bi-annual footpath inspection and maintenance program for the whole of the Shire. Footpaths may be repaired when cracked or uplifted by more than 20mm. Should you see a damaged or broken footpath, please report the damage type and location to the Shire on 9771 7777 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
