Social infrastructure

Social infrastructure is our spaces, places and services that support the community.

Facilities that support the community are our social infrastructure.

It's our social infrastructure that brings people together. It creates a sense of place, inclusive communities and supports us to grow, thrive and connect.

Social infrastructure includes:

  • Community facilities – hall, libraries and cultural spaces
  • Sport and recreation facilities – pools and indoor sports centres
  • Facilities to support health and safety – lifeguards, cemeteries and public amenities.

These places enable us to:

  • Meet friends and family
  • Attend an event or function
  • Take part in recreation activities
  • Engage in creativity and the arts
  • Access information, services and programs.

Our growing region calls for new facilities. To meet this demand, we must look to smart technologies and partnerships to deliver a high-performance social infrastructure network.
