Information for Sportsfield Hirers

Before using the sportsfields

  • Inspect the sportsfields/sporting facilities to ensure they are fit for play. Games/training should not go ahead if water is pooling, the play surface is wet underfoot, or debris is not cleared.
  • Report if sharps (syringes) are found. Secure the site and contact Council on 9725 0222 for an emergency call for attendance by an appropriately trained officer, who will safely dispose of these items. 

After using sportsfields

  • Report any hazards/vandalism/damage by calling Council's Customer Service Centre on 9725 0222.
  • Floodlight Plans are attached below, which may assist to report floodlight issues.
