How can we help you get active?

Healthy active living in Mount Alexander Shire

Let us know how we can improve local parks, reserves, and other recreational facilities to suit your needs when it comes to staying active.

Friday 27 October 2017

Mount Alexander Shire Council is encouraging local residents to have a say on how it can improve services and facilities to help people get active.

Let us know how we can improve local parks, reserves, and other recreational facilities to suit your needs when it comes to staying active.

“We would like to know the what, where, and when of how residents stay active to help shape our recreation services plan,” said Ben Grounds, Manager Community Places and Spaces.

“There are so many different ways that people can stay active whether it be walking, running, cycling, dancing, tai chi or working out at the local gym.

“We are keen to understand more about where people exercise, and if they enjoy fitness activities alone, with friends, or as part of a group.

“All these factors are important when trying to determine where to best invest our efforts to promote healthy active living in the shire and provide suitable facilities.”

Get involved by completing a five minute survey via the Have your Say section of Council’s website by 24 November 2017.

Residents can also pick up a hard copy of the recreation survey at the Civic Centre, Castlemaine Library or community centres.

Your feedback will be used to develop a Recreation Services and Infrastructure Plan to guide the future investment in local sports and recreation facilities, considering current and future needs and participation.

Council is working with local sports groups, clubs and committees to complete a review of participation levels and sports facilities in the shire.

This will ensure Council manages facilities to help people get and stay active.

The draft plan is expected to go on public exhibition in 2018. The project is supported by a grant from the Department of Sport & Recreation Victoria (SRV).
