Consultants Otium highlight how aquatic and recreation projects stimulate local communities
Leading industry consultants Otium Planning Group have highlighted how a range of aquatic and recreation facility projects to which it has had input are stimulating local economies, enhancing active and healthy lifestyles and delivering much needed social and economic benefits.

“Not only will this aquatic and leisure facility investment stimulate much needed social, health and economic benefits but the facilities collectively will form a legacy of places and spaces that will stimulate their communities to be healthier as well as be ‘more active more often’.
“Otium Planning Group is extremely pleased to have contributed professional planning and business services in association with great teams of designers, engineers, project managers and quantity surveyors to make many of these facilities ‘come to life’.”
