Sport and Recreation Facility Plan

Council is developing a new Sport and Recreation Facility Plan to help guide the future development of sport and recreation in the shire.

The Plan is a community document and is being developed in conjunction with ROSS Planning, who have been engaged to complete community consultation and analysis of existing facilities.

The consultation so far has included community surveys and workshops run by Ross Planning to gather important feedback from the community and sporting clubs that will help guide development of the plan.

We received a good response during consultation and would like to thank all of those that have provided feedback by attending the workshops or completing the surveys. 

 All of the data collected is now being analysed to develop a draft plan that will be presented for review before the plan is finalised.

The Plan will investigate:

  • Sport and recreation participation and needs 
  • Assess any gaps in the provision of facilities to meet current and predicted future demand
  • Establish roles and responsibilities for Council and the community to address demand for sport and activities
  • Investigate management models recognising challenges.
