While walks continue and the walkers become a walking group, work starts on preparation to be ready to apply for funding to establish the trail. Way pointing of the route is undertaken, landholders other than City of Onkaparinga – Parks SA, Forestry, Field Naturalists SA and a few private landowners, are approached. The aim is to have the trail as much as possible on public land. Committee members present the concept to community groups such as Friends of Aldinga Scrub, Friends of Onkaparinga Park, Trees for Life. Planning is started and sources of funding considered. Detailing costing including estimation of infrastructure required is undertaken.

After public consultation where it received overwhelming support, the Willunga Basin Trail is accepted into the Trails and Cycling Management Plan, a necessary step in applying for funding.

Meeting at the Hub in Willunga between Council officers and WBT Inc is held to consider how to proceed. It was accepted that the trail be on natural surface as much as possible and that it be a walking trail. A pilot project on Edwards URR was agreed upon. In Spring 2017 olives were cleared by council contractors to make way for the trail through there.
