Where to from here

Council cannot finance all of the recommendations from the Elizabeth Daniels Sports Complex Master Plan 2013-2028. The adoption of the master plan provides council and stakeholders with a sound base to lobby the state and federal governments for funding. This will be conducted in partnership with the Elizabeth Daniels Sports Complex users, the community and council.

Overview

Sport facilities play an important role in the local community. Master planning helps to provide infrastructure which reflects community need.

The Elizabeth Daniels Sports Complex Master Plan considers:

  • Facilities and uses within the site
  • The current character and functionality of the landscape
  • The needs across various sport and recreation uses
  • The needs of the community and surrounding population
  • Trends, issues and priorities
  • Events and sport and recreation delivery
  • Car parking and traffic movement requirements
  • Relevant council endorsed plans and strategies
  • Relevant planning constraints and opportunities.

Background

The Elizabeth Daniels Sports Complex has been developed over time. Development of the master plan was mindful of:

  • community comment received during August and September 2013 on the draft plan
  • council’s Sunshine Coast Open Space Strategy 2011 and Sunshine Coast Sport and Active Recreation Plan 2011-2026
  • changes in sporting and community group membership
  • population growth and future road network impacts.
