DRAFT COMMUNITY SPORTS INFRASTRUCTURE STRATEGY

Singleton Council is working with sports groups and the community to develop a draft Community Sports Infrastructure Strategy.

The final Community Sports Infrastructure Strategy will cover the sporting fields and associated infrastructure of the 14 Council owned village, local and district sportsgrounds across our local government area to address current and future demand for activities and provide a clear vision for sports infrastructure projects. 

 Most importantly, it will assist in setting out sports infrastructure priorities to help guide the pursuit of grants and allocation of funding. 

 Whilst the strategy is focused on Council owned sporting infrastructure, Council will also continue to work with and support community sporting groups that utilise private facilities.

Council has engaged insideEDGE Sport and Leisure Planning to undertake the development of the Strategy, who are engaging with sportsground users, clubs and regional sporting bodies to inform the draft document.

 Council is also encouraging everyone in our community to provide input – whether you’re involved in organised sport or use these facilities for active or passive recreation. All you need to do is complete the survey before Sunday 30 May 2021 via https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/singletonsportsgrounds
