2.1 Introduction

The main purpose of this study is to evaluate the sporting and recreational priorities for the next ten (10) year period for the Devonport City Council, its management, staff, Alderman and other key stakeholders or providers of sporting and recreation provision within the municipality. This study is designed to create a 10-year vision for the future leisure and recreational needs of the City, ensuring that Council continue to offer an excellent standard of sporting and recreation provision, with strong linkages to other areas of Council eg  the arts, libraries and other community services.

The Devonport City Council Recreation Strategy plan must:
  • Map the future makeup of the Devonport Community and project their anticipated recreational needs. 
  • Understand the needs of local recreational and sporting groups, to ensure ensure that sporting and recreational infrastructure continues to meet participation trends and expected community demand.
  • Examine  the  efficiency  and  effectiveness  of  the  current  range  of  Council  provided  sporting  and  recreational facilities, including public open space.
  • Examine the range and use of the spectrum of sporting and leisure programs and activities offered in the local community.
  • Endeavour to ensure equity in the provision of recreational facilities and services.
A key part of any future planning must be based upon the quality planning and research which has been undertaken in the past, of which Devonport has several excellent quality studies and research projects in the areas of sport, leisure, aquatics and arts provision.
