Planning for the provision of Sport and Recreation in Australia

This resource has been developed to inform and guide the recreation planning process and is particularly targeted at officers within local government with responsibilities for the development and management of community sport and recreation. The resource will be helpful though to anyone wishing to engage in recreation planning. The resource is not intended as a prescriptive template. Rather it represents a framework with key elements which need to be carefully considered in the development of any recreation planning to ensure successful outcomes are obtained. It is desirable that this resource continually evolves to remain relevant. As such, contributions that contribute to the currency and value of the resource will be most welcome.
The core objectives of this planning guide and the related materials are to: provide guidance and resources to help a range of agencies better understand the importance and scope of leisure and recreation planning at the strategic level provide a detailed explanation of the steps involved in the preparation of leisure and recreation plans so that when planning is carried out, it is undertaken in a way which achieves the most effective outcomes and achieves optimal benefits for all sectors of the community.
