Council provides and supports recreation facilities, services and programs because people living, working, studying and/or visiting Banyule should have access to a diverse range of recreation opportunities, regardless of ability or background, so they can be as physically active, socially connected and healthy as possible. The plan supports the objectives in Banyule's Council Plan 2017-2021 in particular the strategic objective of 'People: Strong, Healthy and Inclusive Communities'. The primary direction for the Recreation Plan is to support and provide health and wellbeing.
In preparing this plan, consideration was given to strategic directions which supported Council plans, national and state strategic documents, industry trends, our understanding of what is happening locally, and what our community told us during the consultation process.
The plan's primary goals regard facilities, communication and education, informal opportunities for residents and participation and partnerships.
