We recognise the vital role that community and recreational groups play in developing a sense of belonging and engagement in this region. Through innovative programs and the use of local knowledge, community groups help ensure that local issues are addressed, community needs are provided for and future challenges are met.
Recreational groups provide opportunities for residents to get active, enjoy healthy lifestyles and enhance individual wellbeing.
We provide subsidised tenure to ensure space is available for residents and groups to meet, network and participate in community and recreational activities as outlined in our Tenure and Land Use Policy.
Occupancy agreements issued under this policy cover several types of spaces, including:
- Council-owned land
- Council-owned buildings
- rooms within larger Council-owned buildings (i.e. a room/office in a community centre)
- land held by Council for public amenity and open space purposes, including land held under the Land Act 1994 (reserves, special leases)
- land and/or facilities on-leased by Council.
