Draft Regional Facilities Plan for Difficult to Locate Sports

Council has combined with Noosa and Gympie Councils to produce the draft Regional Facilities Plan for Difficult to Locate Sports.

This is your chance to help shape the future of the region’s difficult to locate sports including aviation (ultra-lights, model aeroplanes, para-gliding and hang-gliding), motorcycling, shooting and competitive powered water sports.

Purpose

There are challenges involved in locating, developing and managing facilities for difficult to locate sports and the three councils have agreed on a collaborative approach.

The aim of a Regional Facilities Plan for Difficult to Locate Sports is to share the overall planning and investment priorities for the four specific sports.

The draft plan has been prepared with input from sporting organisations and includes recommendations to guide the planning and development of the four difficult to locate sports and will assist in identifying short, medium and long term priorities.

Key themes

External consultation occurred as part of the development of the draft plan, including reference groups and targeted consultation with relevant peak bodies, local organisations and clubs.

Key themes that emerged from this phase included participation rates being either static or increasing across the four sports, the local clubs are predominantly satisfied with the standard, provision and location of their current facilities and there are some local facilities which have the ability to expand to a regional level.

The draft plan focuses on public land and community-based clubs and sports and does not include private facilities.

Where to from here

Public feedback on the draft plan will help to inform the development of a final Regional Facilities Plan for Difficult to Locate Sports which will be presented to council for adoption.
