Port Macquarie-Hastings Council recognises the importance of sport and recreation as an integral part of our social fabric, generating community cohesion and attracting visitors to the region. As we know and appreciate our region has some fantastic recreational resources including the Port Macquarie Indoor Stadium, Port Macquarie Skatepark, the Wauchope All-abilities playground, our sporting facilities, and iconic beaches.
It is vital that Council works closely with the community to deliver these services and opportunities. As a Council, we need to be well prepared to continue delivery of an appropriate level of recreational facilities and services into the future. This includes maintaining a commitment to the provision of sports facilities, providing for participation in unstructured activities and a variety of passive and active recreational pursuits.
Due to the increase in facilities and services provided to and required by the community, participation in and provision of these opportunities has become more complex. Council must plan, develop and manage suitable allocation of funding, resources and priorities to ensure all members of the community are offered the opportunity to participate.
This plan aims to provide Council with the necessary framework to provide for the short to medium term provision of recreational facilities.
