We recognise the important role sport, recreation and physical activity has in creating liveable communities.  We understand that sport and active recreation is the social glue that can bind communities together to create strong connections between residents, helping to create new friendships and networks and reducing social isolation.

The aim of Active Indigo is to positively contribute to the health and wellbeing of the community. To promote livability through a diverse range of fit-for-purpose, affordable, accessible formal and informal recreation opportunities (programs, services and facilities) that encourages local residents and visitors to become more physically active. Quality open spaces, a connected network of tracks and trails and sustainability are some of the key priorities.

This Strategy was adopted by Council on 26 June, 2018.

 

Allans Flat Waterhole is a valuable open space for the Indigo community. It is a historic open space reserve providing opportunities for the community to connect with nature and to engage in informal water-based recreation activities.

The reserve has an open water body with adjacent picnic features and provides an aesthetic location for visitors to the region and to local groups and individuals seeking a tranquil open space location. The reserve is quite diverse in nature, with sections of the reserve occupied by bushland, wetlands, general cleared open space, as well as a few specific sport and recreation spaces.

The masterplan was established to provide a 10-15 year guide for future developments and improvements at the reserve. The masterplan will provide guidance to Council to ensure future development of facilities and environmental protection. 

The masterplan was adopted by Council on 27 February 2024.

We are the custodians of an extensive range of community assets. In order to deliver a variety of services to the community, Indigo Shire must ensure that the assets supporting these services are managed in a sustainable way over the long term.

The purpose of this Asset Management Strategy is to outline the necessary activities that need to be undertaken and implemented to achieve the continued implementation of Council’s Asset Management Policy.

The strategy provides the framework to guide a maintained core standard of asset management practice at Indigo Shire, providing the structure for further development (as required) into advanced asset management moving forward.

 

Our Asset Plan illustrates the importance and magnitude of the infrastructure assets for which council is the custodian. This plan allows our community to be more informed, helping to develop a mutual understanding of the best use of council assets in the interest of the community.

The Asset Plan was adopted at the 28 June 2020 Council Meeting.
