Submissions Extension - Draft Hassans Walls Mountain Bike Trails Strategy

By Lithgow City Council
Posted: 7 May 2021
Lithgow City Council has recently extended the timeframe for the community to have their say on the draft Hassans Walls Mountain Bike Trails Strategy.

The Lithgow Regional Economic Development Strategy 2018-2022 (REDS) identified that one of Lithgow’s key endowments is an abundance of natural and recreational amenities. One of the REDS key strategic directions is the prioritisation of liveability/lifestyle infrastructure and local place-making. A related priority action is the development of recreation infrastructure such as mountain bike trails.

A draft Mountain Bike Trails Strategy for Hassans Walls Reserve has now been developed with the assistance of recognised experts in the field. The draft strategy details the infrastructure trails requirements, and cost to develop 3 purpose-built mountain biking trails at Hassans Walls Reserve. These would be suitable for broader scale mountain biking super flow type events. These are geared to a wide range of riders – from elite to amateur racers as well as families, couples and groups of friends riding together.

With the trails finishing close to the Lithgow City Centre, it is anticipated that this can lead to increased spending locally by visitors.

The draft strategy is available for viewing at:

  • Council’s website
  • Council Administration/Customer Service Centre
    180 Mort St LITHGOW NSW 2790 Mon to Fri 8.15am-4.00pm;

Should any person or group wish to make a submission on the draft strategy, it should be referenced “Draft Mountain Bike Strategy” in writing and be received by 4.30pm on 14 May 2021.

Submissions should be addressed to: Lithgow City Council, PO Box 19 LITHGOW NSW 2790, or emailed to .
