Community Infrastructure Plan

The City holds a primary role for the provision of community buildings and public open space to accommodate organised and social sporting, recreational and leisure activities. In order to ensure that residents have equitable access to fit-for-purpose, sustainable community infrastructure the City undertakes the regeneration of existing facilities in older more established areas, and provides new facilities in growth areas as communities become established.

The City’s Community Infrastructure Plan (CIP) provides an evidence based framework to assist Council in making decisions about the level of provision of community facilities throughout the City over time. The CIP aligns with the City’s key strategic documents and informs the City’s Corporate Business Plan and Long Term Financial Plan.

The City’s CIP focusses on major community facilities such as community centres including libraries, sporting and recreational playing fields and associated buildings. These are the basic community infrastructure requirements that will help facilitate community participation, connection and a healthy lifestyle.

Master Plans

The Master Plans were developed in consultation with sporting clubs, community groups and local community members, and are supported by sound financial management and maintenance practices included in the Council’s Long Term Financial Plan.

The Master Planning Initiative was based on the following objectives:

  • Identify current and future demand, and the best use for the reserve and facilities at each of the hubs
  • Develop concept plans for each of the hubs with a sound rationale behind the various design elements
  • Provide direction in the sustainable allocation of resources for the ongoing maintenance and development of reserves and co-located facilities
  • Gather a sound evidence base for the future development of the hubs to assist in sourcing external funds

An overview and link to each of the Master Plans is provided below.
