Clarence Recreation Needs Analysis

Council is undertaking a Recreation Needs Analysis to capture the current demand for sport and recreation and to assist with future planning for community facilities.

The project will involve a comprehensive review of the current use and condition of all Council sport and recreation facilities and to identify strategic priorities for future provision.

Council have engaged ROSS Planning to undertake the Recreation Needs Analysis given their experience with recreation and open space planning and having completed similar projects for local government nationally.

Key tasks to be undertaken as part of the strategic review will include:

  1. Facility inspections
  2. Extensive community consultation
  3. Identify significant trends/challenges for Council
  4. Preparation of a draft document for public exhibition
  5. Adoption of the final Recreation Needs Analysis

The Recreation Needs Analysis will involve wide ranging consultation will Clarence based sporting organisations, State Sporting Organisation and peak bodies, State agencies and the residents of Clarence.

The community is encouraged to participate in the project by completing an online survey as a member of sports club; as a parent or spectator that regularly attends sporting facilities; or as a member of the public that exercises in one of Council’s numerous parks and reserves.
