An extensive consultation process was undertaken with key individuals and stakeholders from across recreation, local government, fitness, outdoor recreation and camps interest areas. The agenda was published in 2006 and a range of actions undertaken by the department and industry groups.
In 2009 further consultation was undertaken to review the agenda with the result being the development of a Recreation Framework. The framework was developed by the representatives of industry peak bodies including; Parks and Leisure Australia (PLA), Leisure Institute of Australia Aquatics (LIWA), Fitness Australia, Outdoors WA, Top Trails and the WA Sports Federation (WASF).
The framework identifies the following five key areas for development in the industry;
- Funding and resource
- Workforce development
- Access to quality recreation experiences
- Asset management
The research and activity underpinning the content of this report builds on the May 2006 strategic analysis of the active, non competitive, recreation sector.
The representatives of the peak bodies have formed a strategic planning group known as the Recreation Custodians who meet monthly to progress actions under the five key areas.
