The Moreton Bay Regional Council has a wide range of facilities which are made available for not-for-profit community and sporting organisations to occupy through lease or licence agreements.
To be eligible to obtain a lease or licence for a Council facility, your community group must:
- be an incorporated association or equivalent
- be a not-for-profit community based organisation
- maintain $20 million public liability insurance
- be able to show how it would meet the financial obligations of a lease or licence
Groups wishing to obtain tenure of a particular Council facility must complete the Request for Tenure of Council Land application form and provide the required paperwork.
Applications will be assessed by a range of stakeholders within council. The completion of this form does not guarantee that your group will receive a tenure arrangement.
Renewal of lease or licence
Groups wishing to renew their lease or licence agreements with Council must complete the Community Leasing Application Form and provide the required paperwork.
Maintaining lease or licensed premises
Groups wishing to make any improvements to their lease / licence area or building must first seek Council’s approval by completing the Community Leasing Improvement Works Application Form and provide the required paperwork.
The Community Leasing team will consult with your local Councillor, as well as a number of internal stakeholders, about the proposed works. This process can take up to four weeks to complete and so this timeframe should be kept in mind when planning any works.
As well as receiving Council’s approval as the Lessor or Licensor through the Improvement Works process, you may also need to get approval from Council and the Department of Environment and Resource Management for development or infrastructure changes to your leased or licensed facility.
You need to go through the same building approval process as if you were making the changes on private land.
Seasonal Sport Field Permit
clubs are invited to complete a Moreton Bay Regional Council sport field permit
application for use of council sports fields.
