Spaces and Places Plan 2021

This regional Spaces and Places Plan comes along at a time of significant disruption and uncertainty. Any approach to planning and decision-making must be flexible enough to adapt to new circumstances, evidence and knowledge as events unfold.

Sport New Zealand aims to inspire New Zealanders to develop a life-long of participating in sport, active recreation and play. Above all, it wants to see “Every Body Active”. Locally led development of spaces and places for sport, active recreation and play that provide quality experiences for people in your communities is something we can influence and is a critical enabler for all of us to be physically active and achieve success.

By working in a collaborative manner, an updated view of the priorities for future sport, active recreation and play spaces and places has been developed to help guide Councils and funding agencies in their decision making.
