Feedback sought on strategy
Feedback is being sought on a strategy that tackles issues such as how to increase participation and public awareness of sport and recreation, motivate people to take part and how providers can best work together to meet the different needs of the public, both now and in the future.
The Draft Recreation and Sport Strategy brings together the perspectives of different organisations involved in sport and recreation in Christchurch, into one comprehensive strategy.
Chair of the Christchurch City Council Community and Leisure Committee Graham Condon said the recent Ministerial Taskforce of Sport, Fitness and Leisure noted the lack of a common vision and that “recreation and sports structures are fragmented, lack integration, co-ordination and leadership”.
“The draft strategy attempts to tackle some of these issues at a city level by getting the various organisations involved to work together in a co-ordinated and collaborative way.”
Copies of the Draft Recreation and Sport Strategy and response forms can be collected from libraries and service centres, or visit www.ccc.govt.nz/Publications/RecreationSportsStrategy, or phone the Leisure Call Centre on 941 6840. The closing date for feedback responses is January 31, 2001.
