The Fair Access Policy primarily guides Council’s work toward providing safe and connected spaces for everyone to access sporting infrastructure, in line with our overarching goal of Whittlesea 2040: A place for all: Connected Community.

This Policy establishes Council’s commitment that gender equality be considered and prioritised in all current and future Council planning, policy, service delivery, facility allocations and practice as they relate to community sports infrastructure.

Shape the future of community sport and recreation

We're committed to enhancing opportunities for women, girls, and underrepresented groups to access sporting infrastructure.

We want to hear from women, girls, and gender diverse individuals to:

  • understand your experiences, challenges and suggestions
  • promote a safe, valued, and respected sports environment
  • encourage sporting clubs to adopt change

Have your say! Complete our quick survey by Tuesday, 30 April.

Now extended until Thursday 2 May 5pm.
