The Active Ipswich Strategy 2031 (AIS2031), is council’s commitment to improving health and wellbeing by creating a more active city. The AIS2031 is council’s ten-year strategy to improve participation in and increasing opportunities for physical activity in Ipswich.

This strategy provides council with a clear and focussed strategic direction, meaningful goals and targeted actions for the planning, management and provision of open space land, infrastructure and recreational services and programs in response to the growth of Ipswich and its community.

The development of this strategy has considered:

  • the community’s current and future participation and preferences in physical activity
  • how the community use and access open space
  • barriers and motivation to participation
  • community health issues related to physical activity
  • how council can best respond to this range of issues.

The AIS2031 proposes the following vision:

“Improving the quality of life and health of the community through greater access to passive and active recreation, sport and physical activity through the sustainable provision of land, infrastructure, facilities, services and opportunities”.

This vision will be delivered through a corresponding suite of 27 Action Plans which seeks to increase physical activity accessibility and participation in all Ipswich residents.
