This paper will provide theoretical evidence of the need for a sustainability framework to aid local government decision makers in their investment in sport development for their regions. An overview of the issues related to Australian sport funding and investment highlight the need to provide a framework for decisions relating to sport investment and development, which is ideally aligned with sustainability principles. Previous research on sustainability and community based programs is reviews and a conceptual framework for analysis of sustainable sport development is proposed.
