Synthetic surfaces discussion paper

With increasingly dry summers, coupled with water restrictions, a decrease in water licences, increased demand for playing fields, reduced availability of land, the use of synthetic turf, especially for streetscapes and private gardens, has become increasingly prevalent.

Consistent with the objectives set down in the PLAWA Business Plan 2011-2016 several key issues relevant to the parks and leisure industry are being investigated with a view to publishing a series of guideline Policy or Discussion Papers.

The Synthetic Surfaces Discussion Paper is one of the key issues that have been identified and is a complementary study to the Water Policy paper.
