The SRAC has been established under the provisions of Section 24 of the Local Government Act 1993 (Tas) as an advisory committee.  The SRAC will assist council with the implementation of the actions contained in the Recreation Needs Analysis 2019 and provide sound advice to council on strategic matters relating to sport and recreation in Clarence.

Some of the key task of SRAC will include:

  • Assist with the review of council policies, procedures and/or strategies, e.g. leasing and hire policy, relating to sport and recreation;
  • Provide comment on council’s sport and recreation planning projects e.g. master plans;
  • Advocate for best use of council facilities with shared facility provision and investment through strategic partnerships with local clubs, peak bodies and all level of government; and
  • Assist with community engagement for sport and recreation matters across the City of Clarence.

It is expected that a community representative will have a broad knowledge and understanding of the trends and challenges affecting community level sport and recreation, and not currently be holding office, e.g. executive/board member, with a Clarence based organisation or peak body.

Council is seeking three community representative to sit on the SRAC and one proxy representative, for a term of four years aligning with the current term of council (expiring 2022).

Community nominations for the Sport and Recreation Advisory Community will be assessed and approved by council appointed members of the committee (aldermen and council staff) and priority will be given to nominees who are not already members of a special committee of council.

To nominate, complete the below nomination form.

Nominations close at 4.00pm Friday 28 June 2019.
