We invite you to share your views on a Draft Community Centre Leasing Policy.

We invite you to share your views on a Draft Community Centre Leasing Policy.

The Draft Community Centres' Leasing Policy provides a consistent and transparent process for the granting and renewal of leases to suitably qualified and experienced associations and / or incorporated bodies. The policy provides guiding principles for the negotiation of leases, while taking into account both the financial and community objectives of Council, as outlined in, “Our Place 2030 Strategic Plan”, as well as achieving the principles of the Social Development Policy.

The key principles of the Draft Community Centres' Leasing Policy are derived from the Sporting and Community Clubs Leasing Policy and are central to the benefits received by the community. The principles are focused on the long-term viability of the lessee organisations, maximising public access and facility use. In addition, the need for the community centres to be inclusive in all their activities and programs is emphasised too.

This 28 day engagement opens on Tuesday June 16 and closes 5pm Wednesday 08 July.
