Master Planning

Planning is a journey that establishes where an organisation, service or facility has come from, where it is now, where it is heading, where it needs to go and how it is going to get there.

It’s a collaborative process that involves all stakeholders to ensure a sustainable outcome for all concerned.  One Eighty has assisted many organisations in determining a strategic future for their services with examples as follows:

  • Kangaroo Island Kingscote Oval Master Plan
  • Prospect Oval Master Plan
  • Port Augusta City Council Central Oval Master Plan
  • Flinders Ranges Council Quorn Oval Master Plan
  • North Ryde City Council Meadowbank Master Plan, NSW
  • Sandy Hook Aquatic Reserve Master Plan, QLD
  • City of Playford Sports Precinct Master Plan

Needs Analysis

One Eighty assists clients in determining demand for services, programmes or facilities relating to the provision of sport, recreation and leisure.

This involves researching trends, consultation with stakeholders, examining existing supply and determining potential usage patterns and management options.

Listed below are some projects that we have delivered –

  • Port Pirie Multi Purpose Facility Needs Analysis and Concept Design
  • Aldinga Indoor Recreation Centre Needs Analysis
  • Launceston Recreation Needs Analysis
  • State Sporting Development Officer Review and Training Needs Analysis
  • The Cove Sport and Community Centre Needs Analysis
  • City of Burnside Youth Recreation Facilities Study
  • Norwood Payneham and St Peters BMX Study


The feasibility stage of a project is normally an outcome of an identified need or strategy. The stages that follow identify the viability of the project based on either a social or commercial outcome or in some cases both.

This ‘rationale for service delivery’ is clearly established early in the piece to develop a foundation on which to determine the long term sustainability of a project.  Our consultants have worked on many such projects with the following being examples:

  • Robe Community Gym Feasibility Study
  • ECH Hydrotherapy Pool Feasibility
  • Aldinga Indoor Recreation Centre Feasibility Study
  • Port Augusta Water Park Feasibility Study
  • Marleston League Indoor Recreation Centre Feasibility Study
  • Football Federation of SA State Headquarters Feasibility Study
