Sports field permit

Council’s new Community Leasing Policy

Council has recently adopted its first regional community leasing policy which will create equity between the tenure arrangements that hundreds of community organisations have with Council over a range of public facilities and sports fields.

In accordance with this policy, sporting organisations will now be required to enter into a three year sports field permit which will detail the allocated days and times of use based on the requirements of each sporting organisation. 

The provision of a three year permit with set days and times will provide sports organisations with certainty around their access to the sports fields and will assist with the scheduling of training and fixtures.

Applications for a sports field permit

Sports organisations will be required to complete an online Sports Field Permit Application for the ongoing use of Council-managed sports fields. Applications will then be assessed by Council, with organisations advised of the outcome of their request and provided with a Sport Field Permit document for signing.
