NSROC has undertaken a number of initiatives to help provide strategic direction for the region, including:
Having identified a number of capacity gaps in the region, we are developing a range of tools and information resources for our member councils to support more effective operation of existing infrastructure and to deliver increased capacity as our population grows overtime.
NSROC and our member councils are working with the NSW Government to deliver a safe and accessible transport system that will connect the region to the city in 30-minutes by public or active transport. This involves addressing missing links, developing local transport programs and embracing new technologies that will optimise existing networks.
This strategy sets out the region’s objectives, targets and projects to deliver our vision of advancing sustainable waste management practices within the NSROC region. It also identifies the priority waste management areas for the region and how progress will be monitored each year. The strategy is supported by the NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA) with funding from the waste levy.
NROC is committed to improving the coordination of community sportsground management across the region to maximise participation opportunities and deliver community health and amenity benefits. This report serves as an update to the previous strategy with a focus on analysing future demand for the provision of sports grounds in the region.
Given the existing deficiency in sports fields across the region, and the potential increase in demand, it is unlikely that demand and supply will be in balance without the construction of more synthetic sports fields. This plan outlines a strategic and efficient approach to the regional provision of synthetic sports fields which maximises community benefits.
