Melbourne East Regional Sport and Recreation Strategy

The Melbourne East Regional Sport and Recreation Strategy has been developed to support and guide Melbourne East Councils and stakeholders in the planning and delivery of regional level sport and recreation facilities and shared recreation trails. Regional level sport and recreation facilities play an important role in contributing to the health and well being of communities, as they generally serve a broad catchment and cater for a diverse range of activities. This strategy investigates the issues and opportunities impacting the planning and provision of regional level facilities, using the information provided by the seven represented Councils, State Sporting Associations, State Government and other regional stakeholder groups.
The Melbourne East Regional Sport and Recreation Strategy identifies the current gaps in regional facility provision and provides clear strategic directions and a planning framework to assist stakeholders and funding providers to prioritise and develop regional projects. The purpose of this strategy is to undertake a regional planning approach that supports the development of both current and new sport and recreation infrastructure for the Melbourne East Region for the next 20 years. The development of a planning framework that improves collaboration across local government areas and delivers regional facilities that support healthy and active communities is a key outcome of this strategy. Councils and other regional stakeholders to prioritise, plan and deliver regional facilities and shared trails collaboratively and effectively.
