RECREATION AND SPORT FACILITY MANAGEMENT GUIDE

Designed to supplement the South Australian Regional Level Recreation and Sport Facilities Planning Guidelines this resource has been developed to assist local government officers and others responsible for the planning, development and operation of recreation and sport facilities identify the appropriate facility management model for their facility.
The successful management of facilities requires a shared understanding and commitment by council and facility operators to manage the facility in an efficient, effective and responsible way. In order to do this it is important.
for councils to determine what they want from the facility especially in terms of community/social, environmental and financialoutcomes. Most critical to the long term sustainability of a facility is achieving a balance between maximising community/social outcomes while minimising costs. These two concepts are often in tension with each other with councilshaving to find a balance between providing the standard of facility and level of services that community need and expect at a cost which is equitable and affordable (for users andcouncil).
