Waratah-Wynyard Council adopted the Frederick Street Future Use Plan in January 2014.

The report provides Council with advice for management options for the use of the Frederick Street Reserve.

This future use plan will ensure that the best balance is achieved in regards to the range of uses of the Frederick Street Reserve and not only includes findings as recommended by the Waratah-Wynyard Recreation Advisory Special Committee, but also makes a series of recommendations informed by a risk assessment, consultation process and future use options as discussed by the Frederick Street Reserve Working Group.

The Council conducted a consultation process over several months involving current and potential users as well as the broader community.

Planning a winning strategy for your sporting organisation

The Minister for Sport and Recreation, Michelle O'Byrne, launched the new Strategic and Operational Planning Toolkit recently.

Sport and Recreation Tasmania's new Strategic and Operational Planning Toolkit has been developed specifically for Tasmanian sporting clubs, providing a simple way for clubs to produce their own strategic plan.

The toolkit provides a step-by-step guide to preparing and conducting strategic and operational planning sessions. It also provides advice and templates to help draft the resulting plans. Clubs using the toolkit will be supported by Sport and Recreation Tasmania client managers, who provide planning advice and services to sporting organisations across Tasmania.

 A copy of the toolkit is available by clicking here.

Sport and Recreation Review 

A Sport and Recreation Review was undertaken by Collins Anderson on behalf of the Waratah-Wynyard Council.  The Review was an initiative of Council and received financial support from the State Government.  It examined the management and maintenance of Council owned facilities.  Both private and public stakeholders were interviewed by the consultants to assess opportunities for cooperating in the delivery of sport and recreation facilities in the area.  The Sport and Recreation Review was adopted by Council on 17 August 2009.
