Looking In On Bass Coast Recreation Services

Bass Coast Shire Council has commenced the next in its line of service reviews, this time with a focus on Recreation.

Throughout the review Council, along with Outside the Square Creative Consulting, will be collecting information on the current levels and consistency of service across the Shire and planning for future improvements.

Recreation is commonly regarded as reserves and playgrounds, but as the review is finding it crosses many other important areas within an active community.

Foreshores, paths and trails, leisure centres and halls are used regularly for a variety of recreational pursuits.

According to Bass Coast Mayor, Cr Kimberley Brown, the purpose of this review is to define Council’s role in the community and to ensure Council is meeting the community’s needs.

“Council is key in ensuring the whole Shire has equal access to service, whether that be for facility development through maintenance or renewal projects, new initiatives or through relationship building, ensuring the sustainability of our community organisations,” Cr Brown said.

The next phase of this review is through three community consultation sessions on Tuesday, 4 August at Grantville Transaction Centre from 2.30pm to 4.00pm, Cowes Cultural Centre from 5.30 to 7.00pm, and Wonthaggi Town Hall Foyer from 8.00pm to 9.30pm.

“We encourage all recreation enthusiasts including clubs, service groups and organisations to attend these sessions to provide their feedback to Council,” Cr Brown concluded.
