Service levels for sport and recreation assets

    We would like to identify other councils that have developed service levels for sport and recreation assets.  We are currently taking stock of our current provision (commencing with buildings - clubrooms/pavilions and change rooms) and would like to bench mark what we provide against other councils.

    If you are aware of some good examples then I would be pleased to hear from you.  In turn, I would be happy to share our findings.

    IPWEA's Yardstick program benchmarks approx 35 Australian parks and recreation organisations (plus another 70 internationally) and will likely have all the info you are after for a modest subscription fee. See Yardstick - Parks, Roading and Recreation Facility Benchmarking

    Hi Larissa,


    The City of Swan here in WA has developed our Standards of Provision for Open Space and Community Facilities. It is available online with the link below:
    https://www.swan.wa.gov.au/files/assets/public/document-resources/council-meetings/2017/10-oct/18/4.1-standards-of-provision-open-space-and-community-buildings.pdf

    This has provided a good framework for assessing requests and prioritising new/upgrade projects.

    Cheers!

    Hi Larissa

    We are improving our Service based approach to Assets at Bayside as well.

    Earlier work done in our Recreation team on sports pavilions lays out some nominal service levels (pavilion standards). These are documented in the improvement plan at bayside pavilion improvement plan

    In assets we are doing a lot of work to harmonise and mature these service levels across all of council - so a lot of thinking is going into how to engage service areas and formalise these service levels. We are prototyping a data model that allows us to link services to assets and qualify/quantify the gaps in service levels.Really interested to hear approaches others are taking.

    Regards
    Eugene
