Draft Sport and Recreation Strategy

Council has developed a draft Sport and Recreation Strategy and is seeking community input and feedback.

The draft strategy is a high level document that provides the guiding framework for the future planning, provision, development and management of sporting and recreation opportunities throughout Kingston. It provides an evidence-based approach for Council to respond to the needs and aspirations of residents and has established a framework and principles to inform Council decision-making, facilitate partnerships and prioritise the allocation of Council resources towards the greatest need.

The draft Strategy determines:

  • key strategic actions to address known or forecast shortfall of facilities to meet sports that attract high levels of participation
  • Council’s role in supporting newer sporting and recreation trends such as disc golf, female participation and minor sport/recreation activities such as equestrian activities
  • a listing of proposed pavilion development projects, including female friendly improvements
  • policy gaps and proposes policy guidelines and principles
  • an action plan for the implementation of the draft strategy.

There are a few ways that you can provide feedback:

Consultation ends Friday 27 July 2018.

Hi team, about 12 months ago I attended a meeting at Rossdale Golf Club. I have not heard or seen anything since from Club, Council or State Government re changes to facilities / golf cours layout / continuation of Aspendale GC / Edithvale Aspendale FC.
This project requires serious community consultation, and could provide facilities for many sporting associations , if given correct procedural negotiation and careful planning

It would be great if hockey was supported more. Currently there is only one club that is well supported in the City of Kingston. These facilities are locked up when not in use. For the participation to continue to grow, kids needs to be able to go and play, like they can, with footy, cricket and netball. We need more venues for practice and social play.

Hi,
In the Draft Strategy Plan, Council identified that additional courts may be required in the Clayton South, Clarinda, Oakleigh South area.
Clarinda Tennis Club has 6 courts, 5 with lights - the 6th court requires lighting to accommodate the increased participation at Clarinda Tennis Club.
Our membership has risen from 160 to 250 in the past few years and is still increasing in junior & adult membership, as well as coaching & Hot Shot players, and our association with the local primary school.
Having 6 courts under lights would enable more players to utilise the courts.
Clarinda Tennis Club has made many improvements to the clubhouse & making our bathroom wheelchair friendly, resurfaced 3 of the courts and replaced fencing. We have had help from Council grants and Tennis Australia grants but more than $60,000 has been provided by the club.
We would be looking for a permit and hopefully some funding from Council to complete the lighting project.

Hi,
We live in Columbia street in Oakleigh South and every Saturday from 8am to 5pm there are constant cars parking and travelling through our street to access the netball courts off Wasington Drive. We can't get out of our driveway! Can council look at providing access to the netball courts via Warrigal road rather than through our street.
Kind regards,
Tung Lam

Hi,
I play social tennis every Wednesday night at the Clarinda Tennis club and there is one court which is not used as there are no lights for that court. It would be appreciated if Council can include the installation of lighting for this tennis court for public as part of Council's Sports and Recreational Strategy.
Kind regards,
Tung Lam

Re netball courts - Forth Ave, Aspendale.
Suggestions-
Traffic should be one way and directed to a designated Drop off point (most suitable location would be at the at the scout hall)
All participants should be encouraged to car pool where possible.
Parking in surrounding streets should be on one side of the street leaving the other side for residents.
Residents should not have to pay additional fees ( the rates are high enough) !!
One hour parking for participants is not long enough, one and half hour parking would allow for a little socialisation before and after the game.
I hope this is helpful.
