Sports Development Plan

sports development plan Port Adelaide Enfield

The City of Port Adelaide Enfield has a rich sporting tradition and Council recognises that sport is a fundamental element of community life, health and wellbeing. 

To further enhance sport in our area, the City of Port Adelaide Enfield (PAE) has been working with Tredwell Management Services to prepare a Council-wide Sports Development Plan.

The draft Sports Development Plan:

  • reviews current trends and community needs around sport;
  • includes engagement with local sporting clubs, peak bodies and the wider community;
  • reviews issues and opportunities associated with sport development;
  • agrees principles for future direction of sports facilities, clubs and programs; and
  • develops strategies, actions and priorities to strategically guide future decisions regarding sports development.

The Draft Sports Development Plan is now available from the link below:



A key input into the preparation of the draft Sports Development Plan was Stage 1 engagement (conducted in 2016) with sporting clubs, stakeholders and the community. As part of the consultation process we had over a hundred responses providing a range of views and insights into how sports can be best developed in our City.

Stage 2 engagement (conducted in July/August 2017) provided opportunity to review and comment on the draft Sports Development Plan. Thank you to everyone who contributed. The feedback received is now being reviewed and will inform the final Sports Development Plan.

Thank you for helping us make our City an even better place to get involved in sport.
