Relevant activities are that Council is tendering for a concept design for a town sports oval and will be undertaking related public consultation over the coming months to scope out the project.

Beach access for the mobility impaired is also currently under consideration, and there is an ongoing program in Laurie Hansen and Phil Rogers parks to improve toilet and recreational facilities.

The concept of a bike path from town to Carlo Point was noted and will be considered as part of road improvement in coming years, and a bike path to Inskip Point, whilst recognised as a real benefit, will need significant input from state and federal levels.
