Colac Otway Shire Tennis Facility Audit & Development Plan  Printer Friendly

Colac Otway Shire commissioned the preparation of a Tennis Facility Audit and Development Plan (the Plan), primarily to identify the future needs, demands and trends of tennis within the Shire and broader community. The draft Plan identifies gaps in the provision and planning of tennis infrastructure and provides guidance on the future direction of an appropriate planning and support model for the provision of tennis for the next 10 years.

Council commissioned Tennis Victoria's Technical Advisory Team, insideEDGE Sport and Leisure Planning and 2MH Consulting, to conduct a detailed audit of 25 facilities across the Shire in order to inform future tennis facility improvement priorities.

The scope of audit works included an inspection of each of the 25 tennis and multi-use tennis/netball courts located within the Colac Otway Shire. The 25 sites were identified by Council based on their land ownership status and Council's understanding of the level of tennis activity conducted at each site. The project area comprised the entire municipality to ensure all active tennis facilities were incorporated into the audit.

The key objectives of the facility audit were to:
- Summarise current site characteristics including surface condition, pavement condition, playing and runoff dimensions, infrastructure condition and provide comments regarding court maintenance.
- To provide a document that can be referenced for creation of maintenance programs and annual budgeting.
- To prioritise recommended works as part of site and facility investigations.

In addition, in providing direction for future facilty provision, the draft Plan reviews the tennis activity in the Shire and the projected market for future tennis participation. The draft Plan provides a thorough investigation into current state of tennis facilities in the Shire. The draft plan informs the future needs, demands and trends of tennis within the Shire and broader community.

At its January meeting, Council endorsed the draft Tennis Facility Audit and Development Plan be placed on public exhibition for a mimimum period of six weeks. Council is now seeking feedback on the draft Plan. A copy of the draft Plan can be downloaded from this website or alternatively a hard copy is available from Council's Apollo Bay and Colac Customer Service Centres. Submissions to the draft Plan close Friday 16 March 2012. Further information on the draft Plan can be obtained by contacting Ian Seuren - Manager Recreation, Arts and Culture on 5232 9476.
