RAF update - 13 November 2020
The feedback gathered during the stakeholder and community engagement for the RAF project has been analysed by independent consultant Research Solutions and outlined in their report ‘Going beyond: Results of the stakeholder and community engagement October 2020’ which will be presented to Council later this month.
There was a great response to the engagement activities, and key findings overall from the stakeholder engagement report identified a high level of support for the concept of the RAF with 87.2% of respondents to the survey indicating that they would use the proposed RAF.
As outlined in the report, the compelling reasons for developing the RAF were:
- Its location in the City of South Perth, more convenient than many of the current venues used (70.3% of respondents used facilities outside of the City)
- That it met the need for a swimming pool in the City of South Perth (79.4% of respondents had used an aquatic or indoor recreation facilities in the last 12 months)
- That it provides the opportunity to create a unique facility which meets the needs of the community.
Council will be considering these outcomes together with the RAF project business case at the online Agenda Briefing at 6pm, Tuesday 17 November 2020 and the online Ordinary Council Meeting at 6pm, Tuesday 24 November 2020.
The report and attachments for the Agenda Briefing are available on the City’s website. Members of the public may address Council by making deputations at the Agenda Briefing. Details about making a deputation and a deputation request form can be accessed on the City's website.
