The Taskforce sees the Stirling City Centre Structure Plan as an opportunity to achieve physical activity outcomes and contribute to the wider outcomes of partners across the sectors of health, transport, education, sport and recreation, environment and community safety through increased levels of health, reduced levels of crime, improved quality of the built and natural environment and increased opportunities for participation in sport and recreation.

The key recommendations in relation to the reform areas and associated initiatives described in the consultation paper are:

  1. Planning for increased density must be fundamentally supported by design.
  2. Planning for activity centres should also promote healthy active lifestyles and ensure provision of public open space, recreational facilities and appropriate infrastructure for other nodes of active transport such as cycling and walking.
  3. Planning for transit oriented development will also need to consider active transportation, including provision of infrastructure for cycling and walking.
  4. Planning for urban growth requires the provision of adequate and accessible social and community infrastructure to support healthy and active lifestyles.
