Southland Spaces and Places Strategy


In 2021 the Southland Regional Spaces and Places Strategy was developed through a collaboration between Sport Southland (now Active Southland), Sport New Zealand, Gore District Council, Invercargill City Council, Southland District Council, Community Trust South, ILT, ILT Foundation, and the Mataura Licensing Trust.  Those organisations had shared interest in working together to create and implement a more aligned approach to regional planning for spaces and places (facilities) for play, active recreation and sport across Southland.

In 2023, the partners to the original strategy, alongside iwi and mātawaka representatives, undertook a review of the 2021 document, which has resulted in this 2023 strategy.
