Urban Design Guidelines for Victoria, published by The State of Victoria Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning in 2017 defines a pathway as: ‘A pedestrian path, bicycle path or other area for use by people but not by motor vehicles.’
NB the word pathway may also refer to a: ‘Route that enables a hazard to propagate from a ‘source’ to a ‘receptor’, ie the ‘source-pathway-receptor’ concept. A pathway must exist for a hazard to be realised. Pathways can be constrained to mitigate risks.’ Ref Culvert, screen and outfall manual, (CIRIA C786) published by CIRIA in 2019.
Guidance on the code of practice for property flood resilience, published by CIRIA in 2021, defines a pathway as: ‘The route that floodwater takes to reach a property.’
