Sport, Recreation, Play and Open Space Strategy

Consultation has concluded. This page will continue to be updated as the project progresses.

We understand the importance of sport, recreation, play and open spaces in our community. We’re currently developing a 10 year strategy to ensure these valuable assets and services remain at the forefront of our planning priorities in the coming years.

The strategy will inform how we prioritise and invest in these spaces, to best meet the needs of our communities in the future.

We have looked closely at what facilities and spaces we currently have, and assessed what changes we believe need to be made, based on previous reports and plans.

Because it's so important that we get this right, we also asked for input and ideas from the people who know the facilities, spaces and communities best – you.

The draft strategy, which includes the community input we received through our survey and in-person consulations with sporting groups and residents in 2017, will be available for public comment early in 2019.
