Our Council worked in partnership with Sport Waikato on the Thames-Coromandel District Sport and Active Recreation Plan. Thanks to all those who provided feedback on the draft plan through December 2019 and January 2020. The plan is designed to provide direction for future investment and focus for our Council, Sport Waikato and providers of sport and active recreation services, programmes and infrastructure in the district. It seeks to identify opportunities for partner organisations that provide community services in the district and contribute to sport and active recreation outcomes. Guidance is based on feedback from our Council’s sport and recreation providers, Sport New Zealand, sector data and demographic information. The draft plan was presented to Community Board workshops and meetings and adopted by Council as a final document in June 2020.
