Leisure and Recreation Planning Definitions Guidelines Webinar

Facilitator– Carina Whittington

Presenter – Wayne Stuart, Otium Planning


A core component of leisure and recreation planning is the development of documents such as strategies, needs analysis, feasibility studies, master plans and various types of designs or drawings. It has been acknowledged that the industry has a broad range of definitions in relation to leisure and recreation planning, which often appear to differ between industries (architects and landscape architects), local government authorities and even within internal business units. For example:

  • How does a concept plan differ from a schematic design?
  • Is a concept plan the same for buildings and open space?
  • What forms a master plan?
  • What is the difference between a needs analysis and a feasibility study?

These are just some examples that demonstrate the need in developing the PLAWA Leisure and Recreation Planning Definitions Guidelines.

The Leisure and Recreation Planning Definitions Guidelines (Guidelines) have been developed through consultation with 17 Western Australian local government authorities and industry organisations, providing a set of definitions and guidance on some commonly used terms by leisure and recreation planners.  Building on the previous work by PLAWA and the Department of Local Government Sport and Cultural Industries, it is not intended for this document to be applied as a standard or rule, but rather as a reference or guide in the absence of any other agreed definitions.

This webinar will review the document and provide users with clarity on the definitions and examples.
