Townsville City Council received funding through the Queensland Government’s Sport and Recreation Planning Program to develop a prioritised plan for the development and implementation of sport and recreation infrastructure in Townsville.
Council engaged CPR Group to develop a 10 year sport and recreation facility strategy to help Council achieve its vision of becoming a leader in the provision of high-quality sport and recreation facilities.
A data-driven process of review, engagement, audit and analysis was followed to deliver a strategy that met a set of guiding principles aligned with Council’s overall planning intent.
An extensive consultation program was conducted including engagement with peak bodies, local clubs and associations, the Townsville community, local schools, government and Townsville City Council officers, Councillors and the mayor to help inform the plan.
The result was a detailed plan that provides Townsville City Council with the tools to make informed, strategic decisions in relation to its management of the sport and recreation facility network in Townsville. The project provides council with a strategic, data driven, well consulted and collaborative plan to inform future decision making within the region.
CPR Group’s plan provides Council with an extensive and practical strategy to ensure the sport and recreation needs of the local community are well supported and guided into the future.
