Leisure Planning for Communities ZAA208


This subject introduces you to aspects of leisure planning for communities, with a particular emphasis on sport, recreation and outdoor activity. Concepts linked to social and spatial planning are used as a platform to present topics in planning. Topics include the political framework of planning, community engagement, resource allocation, leisure behaviour, and activity. Other topics of planning such as concepts of demand and supply, social and spatial parameters of leisure behaviour are investigated too. Demographic consideration to support social and spatial planning including things like age, gender, race, income, health, housing, location is utilised, as is geographical aids that support planning.
