Help shape the future of sport and recreation at Burnside Council!

Do you like to walk the dog or play sport in Burnside? Do you have kids that play at the local playground or swim at the Burnside Pool? Do you like a family game of tennis at the local public courts on the weekend? If so, we need your comments and suggestions on the Draft Sport and Recreation Strategy for the City of Burnside.

How can I get involved?

You are invited to provide comment on the findings of the Draft Strategy and the more than 120 Actions indentified in the Implementation Plan. Simply complete the survey, add any other ideas you have to the discussion forum, ask our project team a question if you require more information or email us.

You can view the Draft Strategy and Implementation Plan from the online document library or printed copies are provided for reading in the City of Burnside Library.

The Draft Strategy has the potential to impact many members of our community and users of our sport and recreation facilities. Your input will help ensure the sport and recreation services we provide meet the needs of our community in a socially, environmentally and financially sustainable manner.

The consultation concludes 5pm on Friday 13 September 2013.

Background

The Council have prepared a Draft Sport and Recreation Strategy to allow Council to plan for future service provision for sport and recreation programs and facilities in the City. The Strategy has the potential to impact many members of our community and users of our sport and recreation facilities.

Council have done a review of the activities that our residents participate in and asked 600 residents from primary school, secondary school and adults what activities they would like to do in Burnside in the future. This information combined with the annual community survey results and a situation analysis has resulted in gaps being identified and opportunities developed to improve our sport and recreation service delivery to our community.

Next Steps

Outcomes of the consultation will be incorporated as appropriate into the Draft Strategy and reported back to Council in November 2013.

    The Draft Sport and Recreation Strategy 2013-2023 engagement closed 13 September 2013. The engagement process was designed to ensure that a wide cross-section of people were given an opportunity to provide comments for consideration. A random telephone survey of City of Burnside residents was undertaken in order to find out the sporting and recreation needs of the community, and also to determine the future priorities for Council.

    The Draft Sport and Recreation Strategy 2013-2023 engagement closed 13 September 2013. The engagement process was designed to ensure that a wide cross-section of people were given an opportunity to provide comments for consideration. A random telephone survey of City of Burnside residents was undertaken in order to find out the sporting and recreation needs of the community, and also to determine the future priorities for Council. The study found that Council is meeting the demands of its residents and that current residents are generally content with the current services provided. There was no desire for significant investment of funds in projects, other than in the ones already identified by Council – George Bolton Swimming Centre Burnside and Glenunga Reserves upgrades.

    This Draft Sport and Recreation Strategy was adopted to provide long term planning for Council’s contribution to the community’s future active and passive recreational pursuits. The purpose of the Sport and Recreation Strategy is to ensure that the City of Burnside is able to meet the minimum needs of our community in a socially, environmentally and financially sustainable and responsible manner.

    This Strategy relates back to the Be the Future of Burnside Strategic Community Plan 2012-2025. It sets out a desired outcome for sport and recreation services in the City. This desired outcome is to deliver a range of fit for purpose sport and recreational opportunities and facilities that foster healthy lifestyle pursuits.

    To support the delivery of this desired outcome, four strategic objectives will guide the development of recommendations of the City of Burnside Sport and Recreation Strategy. These are that Council, through its service delivery, will aim to:

    1. Provide fit for purpose and well managed facilities
    2. Enhance urban character, amenity and environment
    3. Increase community awareness, involvement and inclusion; and
    4. Provide diverse, innovative and sustainable programs.

    In order for this Strategy to be effective over the next ten years, Council will continue to listen to its community and ensure that it responds to the needs and aspirations of the changing population. This can be achieved by building upon the already diverse range of sport and recreation facilities and programs.
