Planning for the community's needs

The City's Community Infrastructure Planning team plan for community, sport and recreation facilities to meet the current and future needs of the City's residents.  

Community Infrastructure Plan

The Community Infrastructure Plan outlines the process undertaken to answer the following questions"

  • What does the City's current and future population look like?
    • How many people, who they are, and where they live
  • What community infrastructure do we currently have to serve these people?
    • Assessing the current facilities against community needs with regard to where they are located, who they are used by, and what form and function they provide
  • What kind of community infrastructure do we need in the future?
    • Additional infrastructure to serve growth areas and fill provision gaps
    • Upgrade or replacement of existing facilities to meet contemporary community needs

Through analysis of the City's demographic forecasts and application of provision standards and guidelines, the Community Infrastructure Plan produces a list of projects (the Implementation Plan) required to make sure that current and future residents have access to community infrastructure.

The Community Infrastructure Plan 2017-2027 was endorsed by Council on 24 October 2017.

Sporting Infrastructure Assessments

Sporting Infrastructure Assessments identify the current provision and use of active open spaces. Population projections and recommended standards of provision are then applied to determine future sporting infrastructure needs.
The Sporting Infrastructure Assessments were conducted in three sub districts:

  • Coastal South (Golden Bay, Secret Harbour, Singleton)
  • Coastal Central (Port Kennedy, Warnbro, Waikiki)
  • Coastal North (Cooloongup, Garden Island, Hillman, Peron, Rockingham, East Rockingham, Safety Bay and Shoalwater)

Master Plans

Master Plans identify the needs of reserves, including numerous components such as sporting surfaces and equipment, buildings, floodlighting, and recreation spaces.
The City has produced Master Plans for the following active reserves:

  • Rhonda Scarrott Reserve
  • Laurie Stanford Reserve
  • Stan Twight Reserve
  • Hourglass Reserve
  • Arpenteur Park
  • Anniversary

To date, two of these Master Plans have already been implemented by the City.

  • The Rhonda Scarrott Reserve Master Plan was implemented in 2016/2017 including the development of the Golden Bays Sports Pavilion; and
  • the Laurie Stanford Reserve Master Plan was implemented in 2016/2017 including the development of the Singleton Sports and Community Centre.
