Sport & Recreation Facilities Strategy 2020 - 2030
Adopted on 13 May 2020 the City of Busselton Sport and Recreation Facilities Strategy 2020-2030 serves as a guide to the development and provision of Sport and Recreation infrastructure throughout the District. The Strategy is the outcome of one of the City’s most comprehensive and engaging community consultation.
With limited resources (municipal funds, land, external funding) the City cannot deliver all of the desired community infrastructure immediately and Council believe the Strategy represents a fair, balanced and sustainable approach to facility development throughout the District as a whole.
