Sport and Recreation Precinct Planning 2017-18 project

Brisbane City Council undertakes sport and recreation precinct plans, in consultation with Council’s community facility tenants and community users, to ensure the optimal use of valuable community facilities and to inform the future investment, development and management of these sites.

Brisbane has an aspiration to be a city of diverse and accessible recreational opportunities for all ages, abilities and backgrounds, with better facilities and venues for all ages to enjoy.

A liveable city is about more than just new jobs and better roads, where great public spaces, parks, community venues, sporting facilities and clubs are easy to access providing safe, diverse opportunities for everyone to meet, play and exercise. 

This project will cover six sport and recreation precincts in Brisbane.

Summary

  • Colmslie Reserve (Morningside Ward)

Project outcomes Comprehensive long-term plans that guide investment, development and management of these precincts by Council and the community.
Latest update The project commenced in January 2018, with completion anticipated by mid-2018.

About the project

Specialist consultants have been engaged to provide sport and recreation expertise and undertake consultation with Council’s community facility tenants and community users in the preparation of these plans.

Consultation will assist Council’s community facility tenants to understand the differing demands on these sites and provide an opportunity to promote their own development needs.

The plans will include recommendations for the development and management of the sport and recreation precincts in the short, medium and long-term.

These recommendations do not commit Council or tenants to their implementation; however, the plans do support Council and the community to seek grant funding and other investment opportunities.

Project objectives

The objectives of these sport and recreation precinct plans are to:

  • undertake a needs assessment of current and future demand of each precinct and associated activities
  • identify and plan opportunities that optimise participation within each precinct
  • ensure access and inclusion principles are integrated across all precinct facilities as part of the precinct planning process
  • engage and work with the community and interest groups in the future planning and management of each precinct
  • strategically plan and schedule future development.
