Review of fees and charges for hiring sportsgrounds and venues


Council is reviewing fees and charges for hiring sportsgrounds and venues to make the system more straightforward, efficient and fair. The proposed changes will also align with the new online booking system.

The draft schedule of fees and charges for venues and sportsgrounds:

  • simplifies the fees structure, making it easier to understand
  • maintains concessions for not-for-profit community groups, and
  • promotes more time slots for hire in community venues.
