|Active Open Space in a Growing Perth and Peel||Curtin Centre for Sport and Recreation Research||2012||
The research concluded that:
- In delivering significant environmental and social benefits, the unintended consequence of implementing Bush Forever, WSUD and Liveable Neighbourhoods planning policies has been a reduction in the amount of open space able to accommodate organised sport.
- With a high degree of certainty, the new suburbs in each of the fringe growth sub-regions of Perth already have a shortage of active playing fields.
- If the provision of the support facilities is taken into account, the total shortfall of open space required for active sport by 2031 is between 480-510 ha depending on the population projections used.
- Without a change to the relevant planning policies and without the State Government stepping in to provide additional active open space as ROS, this shortage can only get worse.

|Fields of Sport Over Future of Sporting Ovals||Kate Murphy - The Canning Examiner||2013||
Opening paragraph: "Perth is facing a shortage of active open space according to a State Government commissioned report that found Perth had a shortfall of 51.6 hectares, equivalent to 23 AFL ovals or 72 soccer pitches. Curtin University researchers completed the report and under their guidelines 1.4 per cent of each residential area should be set aside for active open space."

|The Future of Australian Sport||Australian Sports Commission||2013||
Individualised sport and fitness activities are on the rise, people are fitting more sport into their busy and time-fragmented lifestyles to achieve personal health objectives.
Participation rates in aerobics, running, walking, along with gym membership have all risen sharply over the past decade whilst participation rates for organised sports have held constant or declined.Australians are becoming more health conscious and are increasingly playing sport to get fit rather than getting fit to play sport.
