Master Planning

A framework for future development

Do you have an open space, sport and recreation reserve or facility that is ageing, dysfunctional, no longer fit for purpose and unable to meet the needs and expectations of your changing community?

Sport, recreation and open space facilities across Australia are under ever increasing pressures to meet the current needs and demands of the community, whilst remaining adaptable enough to respond to dynamic challenges of increasing magnitude including climate change, finite resources, changing participation preferences, increasing expectations and competing demands just to name a few.

Whilst this is a challenging prospect, ignoring these challenges and pressures is not the best option. Such problems tend to amplify if left unresolved. Difficult conversations may need to be had and a strong direction clearly articulated, together with a robust rationale for any future investment, gaining buy-in and support from key stakeholders and the broader community along the way.

Ultimately, all these types of facilities need to be welcoming, accessible, inclusive, fit for purpose, responsive to change and sustainable to ensure that each member of your community is given every opportunity to lead active and healthy lifestyles, integrally connected into their community.

Engaging Tredwell to work with you and your community through a master plan process will ensure that a thorough site investigation and analysis will be undertaken, members of the community and key stakeholders will have the opportunity to meaningfully engage, and all relevant issues and opportunities will be identified, prior to exploring options to deliver a long term, sustainable solution for your facility.


“I wish to convey the very great appreciation of your work on behalf of the Willunga Recreation Park committee and its constituent clubs. The pathway outlined is clear and you have distilled the thoughts of the club representatives from the discussions and surveys carried out. We have had a number of iterations of strategic plans previously but we commend you for the clarity and the practical linkages of the Plan.”
Paul Williamson, President, Willunga Recreation Park Inc
