WORK has been suspended on a Kyneton movement study so more information can be gathered around traffic and parking trends.
The Macedon Ranges Shire recommended councillors suspend the Kyneton Movement Network Study.
The KMNS, along with the Kyneton South Framework Plan, were created to guide future infrastructure planning for the region.
But the shire's director of assets and operations Shane Walden told councillors the community was concerned the two studies were too focused on Kyneton's growth area.
"The community felt the KMNS... required more focus on movement challenges in the existing township," he said.

"The feedback received through community consultation... means that further work is required on the KMNS before it can be brought back to council and the community."
The shire will first need to deliver the updated Kyneton Urban Design Framework, Mr Walden said.
The framework should be completed early in the next financial year.
"The Urban Design Framework is focused on the central Kyneton issues that currently exist," he told councillors.
"It's really important that work gets done first because it will inform both the Network Movement Study and take into consideration what extra impacts may occur as a result of the growth through Kyneton South."
The Macedon Ranges Shire Council resolved to suspend work on the movement study.
