Outdoor recreation facility guide for private land owners

Sport and Recreation Services have developed guidelines to assist the private sector plan and manage land to increase the amount of private land made available to the public for outdoor recreation activities.

Design and Development of an Outdoor Recreation Facility (PDF, 1.8M) has been developed for private land owners or land managers who are interested in establishing outdoor recreation facilities on their land.

The guide provides basic advice about issues to consider when planning and constructing an outdoor recreation facility and identifies relevant sources of further information. Issues covered in the publication include initial planning, including assessment of the project’s feasibility and suitability of the site, through to facility design, development approval and phases of construction.
The guide is not intended to be comprehensive and does not replace the need for wider research and/or expert advice, but highlights a range of essential, generic issues to consider when planning and developing an outdoor recreation facility.
