Aquatic recreational activities have evolved over time, this draft strategy has been developed to ensure that our future provision of aquatic and leisure facilities and the services offered address current and future unmet aquatic and leisure needs, as well as continue to meet the demands for recreational and lap swimmers.

The draft strategy recommends that Council provide upgrade service investment in line with the following principles:

  1. High quality, accessible and inclusive
  2. Affordable and viable
  3. Well planned, maintained and managed
  4. Monitioring and review

The implementation of the Moreland Aquatic and Leisure Strategy will require an investment of approximately $230m over the next 20 years. This will be the highest level of investment proposed for any single service in Council’s history.

The draft Aquatic and Leisure Strategy has been endorsed by Council and is now available for public exhibition.

Consultation

Initial consultation took place between 6 June and 28 July 2017 and involved a variety of tools to gather information and ideas from the community.

The information we received during our initial consultation has been used to develop the draft strategy. It is important that the recommendations in the strategy are shaped by the community.
