WA Leisure and Recreation Planning Definitions Guidelines

  • December 12, 2023

The industry has a broad range of definitions in relation to leisure and recreation planning, which often appear to differ between architects, landscape architects, local government authorities and even within internal business units.  The Leisure and Recreation Planning Definitions Guidelines (Guidelines) have been developed through consultation with 17 Western Australian local government authorities and industry organisations, providing a set of definitions and guidance on some commonly used terms by leisure and recreation planners.  Building on the previous work by PLAWA and the Department of Local Government Sport and Cultural Industries, it is not intended for this document to be applied as a standard or rule, but rather as a reference or guide in the absence of any other agreed definitions

Our sincere appreciation to all the participating LGAs and the following individuals for their valuable contribution and advice.
