Wide Bay Burnett Regional Recreation and Sport Strategy
Over the next 25 years, the Wide Bay Burnett is expecting a population increase in the order of 180,000 people and it is important that the lifestyle infrastructure is in place to support this population. In supporting the Wide Bay Burnett Regional Plan, this strategy seeks to identify the region’s recreation and sport requirements for the future.
The identification of these needs will assist Councils within the region (Bundaberg, Fraser Coast, Gympie, North Burnett and South Burnett Regional Councils and Cherbourg Aboriginal Council) to plan for future land and facility provision in areas that will have the population to sustain them.
While other avenues exist to support the development of sport at a local and state level, this strategy focuses on a range of regional level sport and recreation facilities.
The term regional, as used in this Strategy, means serving the needs of the Wide Bay Burnett or a significant proportion of it.
