Help us finalise the draft Sport and Active Recreation Action Plan 2021-25

Consultation now closed.

The draft Sport and Active Recreation Action Plan 2021-25 is our plan to get more people physically active.

More than 50 per cent of our community are not sufficiently physically active. This follows a national and global trend, and the community and individual social and health impacts of this are well documented.

The community and individual social and health benefits of participation in sport and active recreation are well recognised by the City of Onkaparinga. We are therefore committed to supporting our community to be physically active through sport and active recreation.

Physical activity through participation in sport and active recreation delivers significant individual and community social, health, economic and environmental benefits.

The goals of our plan are to:

  1. Increase Participation - we will support all residents in our community to be physically active through sport and active recreation.
  2. Build Provider Capacity - we will support all providers of sport and active recreation in our city to be safe, welcoming and well managed.
  3. Improve Facilities - we will provide safe, welcoming and fit for purpose sport and active recreation facilities and that meet community demand.

The plan has been informed by detailed research and extensive engagement undertaken with sport and active recreation groups, clubs, associations and the broader community and industry.

View the draft Sport and Active Recreation Action Plan 2021-25 and the 'plan on a page' action plan in the document library.

In addition, Action 16 in the plan specifies a 10-year Sport Assets Works Plan (SAWP) is to be completed in 2021 and this is provided on this page. While it is provided for information, we acknowledge that the SAWP priorities may change based on factors such as external funding opportunities, unforeseen circumstances such as catastrophic events, a demonstrated significant shift in demand, need for change in use, pursuit of an agreed opportunity, risk, or policy (state/federal). The community also may request the introduction of new projects that fall outside the SAWP which will be considered for inclusion based on merit and demonstrated need. As a result, the SAWP is an evolving document and thereby an ongoing work in progress.

The SAWP categorises projects into the following delivery timelines which have been informed by robust asset planning and prioritisation and align with the long term financial plan:

• Short (1-3 years)

• Medium (4-6 years)

• Long (7+ years)

You can view the 10-year Sports Assets Works Plan here.
