Facility Planning Roadmap

Designed by Aktive in partnership with Auckland Council, the Facility Planning Roadmap assists and informs organisations that want to develop a sport or recreation facility. 

In the form of a flowchart, the Roadmap identifies the stages involved in the facility planning process; the key principles of facility provision; and the benefits of joint and shared facilities; and, with further planned development, will help to unravel the complexities of the design and consenting process. It also identifies potential sources of funding and references various facility planning guides, templates and other resources. 

Aktive will act as the clearinghouse for enquiries around the Facility Planning Roadmap. Local support will be provided by community delivery partners CLM Community Sport, Harbour Sport, Sport Auckland and Sport Waitākere.

They are evidence-based and provide direction on priority projects for development. Whether multi-code or code specific, these plans help to ensure provision is delivered in the areas of greatest need which will have the highest impact.
