Shire of Ravensthorpe Sport and Recreation Master Plan
The Shire of Ravensthorpe engaged Tredwell to develop a Sport and Recreation Master Plan for the Shire, in collaboration with the local community. The Master Plan strategically identifies projects and initiatives to enhance sport and recreation in the Shire and includes a detailed implementation plan which is prioritised, identifies partners and resource requirements. The project methodology consisted of background research, site audits, consultation, and the development of a comprehensive strategy and action plan.
The Master Plan’s vision seeks to reflect the aspirations of the community in relation to planning for sport and recreation. The achievement of this vision requires partnerships between the Shire, the wider community, sport and recreation clubs/groups, state and federal governments, agencies, and peak bodies.
It is important to understand what the community sees as a priority, what facilities are underutilised or overutilised, the costs to upgrade or replace existing facilities, the costs to add high priority services and whole of life costs. This ensures there are functional and sustainable sport and recreation facilities and services provided that meet the needs of the community.
