The Open Spaces and Physical Activity Strategy is a high-level document that sets the long-term strategic direction for public open spaces, sport, recreation and play in the district. It supports the delivery of a leading edge district and community in line with the council’s strategic direction as well as the three community outcomes: quality of life; connections to each other, our place in the world; and community pride in our unique identity.
The purpose of the strategy is to guide decision-making around the provision, development and management of open spaces so that they support the health and wellbeing of the environment, individuals and communities, now and in the future.
