Review of our Sport and Active Recreation Strategic Management Plan

Published on 30 January 2020


What is the Sport and Active Recreation Strategic Management Plan (SARSMP)?

Endorsed by Council in 2014, the Sport and Active Recreation Strategic Management Plan (SARSMP) 2014-2019 purpose is to guide the future provision, enhancement and management of sport and active recreation facilities, services and programs across the City of Onkaparinga through to 2035. This is in line with our overarching Community Plan 2035.

Why is the SARSMP being reviewed?

SARSMP is being reviewed in five-year cycles and we are nearing the end of the first cycle. To inform the review process we have undertaken an internal evaluation of SARSMP 2014-2019 and have appointed Ross Planning to undertake a sport and active recreation research and analysis study to identify key changes and trends that have occurred since 2014 and that are anticipated in the next five years.

What is the SARSMP review?

As part of the review of SARSMP there are a number of important activities that will ultimately guide the new strategic directions and supporting activities. The Project Timeline Summary provides an overview of the various projects including their purpose, responsible staff and indicative time frames. SARSP Project Timeline summary Info graphic 2 endorsed(PDF, 135KB)
