Cororooke’s Andrew Beale hopes community members and community groups will show their support for a shared path proposal around Lake Colac.
Mr Beale and the Red Rock Progress Association have proposed a 22-kilomotre path, which people could use for a range of activities while enjoying and exploring the lake’s surrounds.
Mr Beale proposed the path would be around the western section of Lake Colac and link Colac and Cororooke.
He said he submitted a proposal to the Colac Otway Shire Council, which he hopes will consider the path as part of a 10-year Council Plan and Health and Wellbeing Plan.
Mr Beale said he believed the shared path would “tie in beautifully” with the council’s Health and Wellbeing Plan.
“The health and wellbeing aspects of any major planning in the community are really important and I think the shared path puts up a really good case for health and wellbeing,” he said.
“The shared path does give the opportunity for four forms of activities or exercise; walking, running, bicycle riding or horse riding.
“Not along the whole path, some sections will be more suitable with those four separate activities and some sections will only be suitable for a couple of the activities.
“The idea of the path on the west side of the lake through some bushland and up to Cororooke is it links Colac to Cororooke.
