Development of the 10 year Aquatic and Leisure Strategy

Moreland pools collageWhy are we developing an Aquatic and Leisure Strategy?

Council has six aquatic and leisure facilities and we know that there are changes in the aquatic and leisure environment, including population growth, changing user expectations, more competition and new trends.

We recognise:

  1. That our facilities are ageing, have increasing costs to maintain and operate and may no longer be configured to match community needs or service expectations.
  2. We need to ensure that we have evidence based decision making that is supported by the community so we can strategically invest in the maintenance, renewal and capital requirements of our facilities.
  3. We need to continue to balance community health, wellness and accessibility needs with cost efficiency.

These factors have an impact on the service we offer, and the Strategy will help to link them together and make sure we have the right approach for decision making over the next 10 years.
