Have your say on our future sporting needs

Cowra Council is developing a 10-year strategic vision for sport and recreation in the Cowra Shire and need your feedback to develop the latest Cowra Sport and Recreation Plan.

Building on previous plans and the achievements of the community in the last 20 years, the Cowra Sport and Recreation Plan will guide sustainable investment in facilities, identify priorities and provide a strategic framework for the planning and management of sport and recreation services.

“Cowra has a proud community sporting culture that is underpinned by a dedicated network of volunteer-run community sport and recreation clubs,” said Mayor of Cowra, Cr Bill West.

“Council recognises the significant physical, mental and social benefits to be gained from staying active, whether that is through organised sport or through more recreational activities, such as walking. We’re very fortunate here in the Cowra Shire to have such a wide diversity of activities on offer and we remain committed to ensuring we maintain and enhance Council facilities and services to continue to support those activities into the future,” Cr West continued.

Otium Planning Group has been engaged by Council to facilitate community engagement and stakeholder consultation to develop the Cowra Sport and Recreation Plan and a series of consultations has been planned to ensure that everyone has a chance to have their say on the new plan.  

Residents are encouraged to complete a short online community survey to share their thoughts on the sport and recreation issues that matter most to them. The survey can be accessed here and will close Friday 4 December 2020.
