WA Guidelines for Community Infrastructure 2020 (Guidelines)

WA Community Facility Guidelines Report: High level public open space and sports on public open space data review, Perth Peel 2020
This summary report analyses the POS, outdoor sport and sport centre information collected and assessed for the 2020 phase of the PLAWA Community Facility Guidelines project. The report offers a present point in time evaluation of facility provision and accessibility in the Perth and Peel region, bringing a contemporary assessment of requirements based on trends and patterns in facility provision, participation in physical pursuits and community behaviours. It is a high-level strategic snapshot of supply and demand for community facility provision and should be considered in conjunction with the Community Facility Guidelines Mapping Portal for Perth and Peel 2020 to understand the spatial analysis within the report.
