Sport Strategy Survey 2021


Consultation period: Monday 11 October to Friday 5 November 2021

Sutherland Shire Council is developing a Sport Strategy. The objective is to establish a framework which will positively contribute to an active, safe, healthy, vibrant and liveable community over the next 15 years. The strategy will include clear recommendations categorised into short-term, medium-term and long-term timeframes to reflect the future demands and requirements for sport and recreation facilities.

The objectives of the strategy are to deliver:

  • A plan for growth – ensure sports assets meet the needs of current and future generations of the Sutherland Shire.
  • Promotion of participation, accessibility and inclusion – encourage and provide access for people of all ages, physical abilities and interests to participate in sport improving health and wellbeing.
  • Programs and frameworks – establish prioritised programs, polices and resources that will ensure optimal use, manage commercial pressures, and allocation of sporting assets.
  • Inform collaborative strategic asset management – ensure the design, configuration, renewal and maintenance of our sporting assets maximise capacity and participation aligning with the needs of the community.
  • Value for the community – determine appropriate service levels and resource allocation to meet needs and deliver best value from sport facility investment and management.
  • Support and engagement of sports clubs and associations – ensure sports clubs and associations are engaged, supported and informed to ensure good governance, sustainable operations and effective facility planning and development.
