Liverpool Plains Shire Council (LPSC) is inviting the community to have a say and assist informing the LP Recreation Strategy that is currently being developed. Shire residents, from all communities, are encouraged to be part of the process by completing a survey. Feedback will provide a shared and clearly defined vision for the improvement of sport and active recreation within the LPS and help Council determine priorities for allocating budget and resources to support and encourage participation in these areas.
The survey will take approximately 10 – 15 minutes to complete and can be accessed at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Liverpool_Plains_Recreation_Strategy_community_survey. For those wishing to complete a paper copy of the survey, they are available at Council’s Administration Centre, Quirindi and Werris Creek Libraries, Plains Fitness, Werris Creek/Quirindi Aquatic Centres and the Visitor Information Centre Willow Tree or call the Customer Service Desk on 6746 1755 to have a PDF version emailed out. Completed paper surveys can be handed in at all these locations or posted to LPSC PO Box 152, Quirindi 2343.
“To ensure the Strategy accurately reflects the needs of the community, we need to gather information from as many residents as possible. Participation in active sport and recreation are important ingredients in the Shire’s social fabric and your contribution will assist Council to support participation by even more people,” said LPSC Mayor, Councillor Andrew Hope.
“The Strategy is a community document and Council has engaged ROSS Planning, specialist sport and recreation planners to assist. The Strategy also includes strategic master planning of Quirindi’s Longfield Oval Precinct as well as the Racecourse and Showground Precinct.
“ROSS Planning have recently been in contact with Shire sporting clubs to seek their input via a specific survey for organisations. If your club hasn’t assisted the process to date please go to https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Liverpool_Plains_Recreation_Strategy_club_survey and please complete as soon as possible,” he continued.
If you’d prefer talking to someone to complete the survey, please contact Dion, Helen or Carly at ROSS Planning on (07) 3901 0730 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. This is a great opportunity for all community members to help develop a strategy that will benefit many in the important area of sport and recreation into the future,” Councillor Hope concluded.
