Golden Plains Shire Council is seeking feedback to help shape the Active Golden Plains program over the next three years.
Council is seeking feedback to understand the recreation needs of residents across the Shire and how Council can support communities to become more physically active. The feedback submitted to Council will directly inform the development of the Active Golden Plains program to be delivered over the next three years.
The Active Golden Plains program provides free sport and recreation programs across the Shire to help more people get active, more often, and to activate local community facilities. The programs are designed to meet the needs of individual communities and aim to help increase physical activity levels and improve the social wellbeing of those who live, work and visit Golden Plains.
Council is seeking to gain an understanding of the types of recreational activities community members of all ages would like to access in Golden Plains and the barriers they may face in accessing these activities. The Active Golden Plains Community Survey will ensure the Active Golden Plains program can be strategically tailored to meet the needs of the diverse communities throughout the Shire, providing a range of programs for community members of all ages.
Community members are invited to complete the Active Golden Plains Community Survey online at Council's Have Your Say page or pick up a hard-copy survey at Council’s Customer Service Centres at 2 Pope Street, Bannockburn and 19 Heales Street, Smythesdale.
Completed surveys can be returned by email to [email protected] or by mail to Golden Plains Shire Council, PO Box 111, Bannockburn, VIC 3331, marked ‘Attention: Active Golden Plains’.
The Active Golden Plains Community Survey closes on Tuesday 8 March, 2022.
Mayor Cr Gavin Gamble says Council is eager to hear from residents and help local communities become more physically active.
“The Active Golden Plains program has been supporting residents to get active within their communities since 2019, with programs including Take the Lead and Stepping over the Sidelines. The program plays a vital role in improving the physical and social wellbeing of our communities by providing accessible local activities for all ages.
“Now, as we look to the next three years, Council is excited to hear more about the programs residents would like to see delivered and how we can continue to support them to be more physically active. We hope to hear from community members across the Shire with this engagement and look forward to delivering tailored programs that meet the needs and expectations of our communities.”
