Playspace Strategy: Policy and Planning Framework

The Play Space Strategy reviews the current provision for play throughout the City of Ballarat’s 132 facilities (including playspaces, youth spaces, skate facilities, BMX and fitness stations) in terms of quality, quantity, location and suitability. It also establishes a long term plan for the future provision of play spaces over a 15 year period. The purpose of the City of Ballarat Playspace Strategy 2016 is to provide principles for planning, strategic policy and guidance for the planning, design and management of all playspaces within the City of Ballarat for the next 10–15 years. These principles are based on community feedback, municipal analysis and research into current industry ‘best practice’.
