Sport and Recreation Plans and Strategies

Community Sport and Recreation Facilities Plan

The City of Cockburn Community Sport and Recreation Facilities Plan (2018 – 2032) aims to provide strategic direction and guidance in the provision of community, sport and recreation facilities across the City. The City has experienced a significant level of population growth and expects this to continue over the course of the next 10-20 years. This growth presents a number of challenges to ensure the needs of the community are met and as such, the Plan provides the strategic framework of provision over the course of the next 15 years. The projects listed in this Plan are funded through a variety of ways, including municipal contributions, developer contributions, community organisations and external grants. The implementation of all community, sport and recreation facilities will also continue to be subject to Council’s annual budget deliberation process and dependent on the City’s ability to leverage Council funding with external funding sources.
This plan is currently being drafted and is expected to be finalised in early 2019.

Western Suburbs Sporting Precinct Study

The purpose of the Western Suburbs Sporting Precinct Study was to explore the potential development and redevelopment options for sports facilities in the City’s western suburbs to cater for future anticipated growth. The Study identifies a coordinated approach on future facility and reserve provision, by undertaking research, consultation and analysis with a view of increasing use and capability of the following sites:
  • Beale Park
  • Lucius Park
  • Dalmatinac Park
  • Davilak Oval
  • Dixon Park and Wally Hagan Basketball Stadium
  • Edwardes Park and Watsons Oval
  • Santich Park
  • The proposed Cockburn Coast Oval.
The outcome of the Study provided site master plans for each site and the estimated cost in 2018/19 figures. The Study was approved by Council at the October 2018 Ordinary Council Meeting and the information will be used to inform with the City’s Community Sport and Recreation Plan and wider Integrated Planning Framework.
