Draft Property Occupancy Policy

The Draft Property Occupancy Policy was endorsed at the May Ordinary Council Meeting.

The draft policy will benefit community groups who occupy Council owned or managed land and buildings by providing tenure security, an equitable and transparent pricing structure and, a clear understanding of any maintenance and reporting responsibilities.

Council provides a number of buildings and public spaces to community groups to allow them to perform their valued roles in the community.

Community and recreation groups provide a much-needed services in our Shire and Council is committed to seeing these groups flourish by providing a secure future to those who utilise Council-owned facilities.

This draft policy will help make Council more accountable for its actions, which is highlighted in the 2017-2021 Council Plan.

Council will engage in extensive public consultation in relation to the Draft Property Occupancy Policy.

The draft policy will be on public display for two months and members of the community are invited to provide feedback.

In addition, each group that uses a Council-owned building will be contacted in writing and invited to provide comments or feedback.
