Community Input Sought to Shape Future of Devonport’s Sports Facilities

The Devonport City Council is seeking community input on the key issues, needs and opportunities to improve the use of Council owned sports facilities across the city.  Feedback will be used to help develop a Master Plan which will establish a strategic direction for sports infrastructure over the next 15+ years.
“Participation in sport contributes to the development of healthy, cohesive, resilient, liveable, and strong communities. To maintain and grow the current levels of participation in Devonport and the immediate region, we need to plan for facilities where people of all ages and abilities can participate in a wide range of sports”, said Mayor Annette Rockliff.
A project working group has been established to assist Council in developing the future sports infrastructure plan. The  group includes representatives from the peak sporting bodies, local clubs and, and Communities Tasmania, as well as Devonport City Council elected members and staff.
“Along with general community input, the group is currently seeking feedback from local sports clubs and state sporting organisations. This feedback is an important part of forming the direction Council and our partners take, to  develop infrastructure that meets the future sporting needs of the City while being financially sustainable”, said Mayor Rockliff.
The survey will take 5-10 minutes and is available on Council’s webpage – Speak Up Devonport [1] or by contacting Council on 64240511 or via email council@devonport.tas.gov.au.
The survey will close 5pm Monday 5 October 2020.
