Strategic Leisure Planning

Strategic leisure planning involves the future planning and development of the community facilities and parks.

The primary aim is to ensure that there are adequate places and spaces available to the community to participate in sport, recreation and community related activities. Leisure planning incorporates future planning, urban design, asset management and sustainability principles while assessing the current and future needs of community.

It is focused on planning for the use of public space providing the conduit between the community needs and expectations and the technical aspects of design and construction to get the best outcome for the community. 

Leisure planning provides “spaces for people” looking beyond the facility itself ensuring spaces that link with the other land uses on site and those surrounding, specifically providing the overall framework for the provision of facilities at a district level.
