The Council plays a central role in promoting healthy lifestyles and building strong communities. This role includes providing recreational and sporting opportunities as well as facilitating community networks.
The Council leases land and/or buildings at a subsidised rental to a wide range of community and recreation groups (groups). As Council-owned land and buildings are a limited resource, the Council needs to allocate this resource in a way that maximises the use of its assets and responds to changing demands.
The Leases Policy for Community and Recreation Groups (policy) sets out the Council’s role in leasing land and/or buildings to groups and provides guidance on:
- granting leases of land and/or buildings to community and recreation groups
- managing leases relating to the groups
- the standard to which land and/or buildings will be maintained to ensure appropriate asset management.
