Helping our community groups

Central Goldfields Shire is home to a myriad of community groups, many of which utilise Council owned or managed buildings and recreational land.

It is important for community groups to have a clear understanding how to access and utilise resources available to them, to be aware of any costs involved, how maintenance issues can be reported, who the responsible contact person at Council is.

Council has great resources that can support your group and help you to become more sustainable and efficient.

This is why Council has recently developed a number of draft policies to document how Council supports community groups.

The aim of this policy suite is to provide a clearer, fairer and more transparent process for all community members.

Council is now seeking your feedback on the following draft policies:

  • Draft Community Support Policy
  • Draft Casual Hire Policy
  • Draft Property Occupancy Policy

We also have the following strategic documents out for consultation:

  • Gordon Garden Masterplan
