Queensland Cricket Infrastructure Strategy 2018-2028
A comprehensive audit of cricket facilities has recently been completed by Queensland Cricket as part of the Cricket Australia-led National Facilities Audit project.
The 12-month auditing process, examining more than 700 cricket venues and 1200 fields used regularly by our cricket clubs across Queensland, has created a strong bank of data from which to plan for future infrastructure needs state wide.
To provide a strategic approach to the development of cricket infrastructure that delivers community outcomes across the state, Queensland Cricket is now focussed on delivering the Queensland Cricket Infrastructure Strategy (QCIS) 2018-2028.
We know that we need to make better use of key urban fields outside of traditional cricket hours, and importantly we need to consult and work with stakeholders to document anticipated growth and set out a blueprint for construction, upgrading and maintenance of cricket facilities where a need is identified.
Queensland Cricket has recently appointed InsideEDGE Sport and Leisure Planning consultants to analyse and map relevant audit data and develop the QCIS. This work is due for completion mid 2018.
You can keep up to date with this process through regular Bulletins which will be published below.
