Playground Asset Management Plan

Playground Asset Management Plan December 2013

In addition to major infrastructure assets such as roads, footpaths, drainage and open space, Council is also responsible for a range of smaller asset sets such as playgrounds. There are 208 public playgrounds managed by Knox City Council, as well as a further 71 playgrounds located in early years facilities.

The Playground Asset Management Plan (PAMP) aims to provide a strategic and practical framework for both Council and the community with regard to the management, protection and care of playground assets. The Plan focuses largely on operational issues required to ensure the sustainable management of Council’s existing playground network in meeting current and future community needs. The Plan also demonstrates Council’s improving maturity with respect to core asset management knowledge and documentation. It is also intended to support the draft Play Space Plan, which will set the broader strategic direction for play within the municipality.

As well as examining the performance of playground assets, the Plan documents and assesses how Council currently undertakes playground management practices, playground expenditure and service standards, and recommends improvement projects that will balance customer expectations, lifecycle costs and risk management into the future.

The Plan comprises a main report and several attachments.
