Derwent Valley
  • The Project

    The Derwent Valley Council have engaged @leisure Planners to prepare a Recreation, Play, Open Space Strategy. This strategy will establish the strategic direction for Council in relation to recreation and open space for the next 10 years and provide policy direction. Read More

    Have your say

    Council is seeking input from residents, clubs and community groups, and users of public open space to help direct this overarching strategy. 

    We would like to know:

    • What do you like most about public open space, parks recreation and sporting facilities in the Derwent Valley?
    • What Council could do to encourage more people to be active, feel included and enjoy parks, sports facilities and recreation facilities more?  
    • How can the value of public open space and Council-owned resources be better realised?
    • As Council has very limited funds, what is the priority for improvements to parks, reserves or public facilities that would benefit the broadest range of the community? 
  • Update - October 2019

    The community survey has now closed. Thank you to everyone who provided their feedback on the future of Recreation, Play and Open Space for the Derwent Valley Council. @leisure are now analysing the findings in conjunction site observations. 

    Update - September 2019
