Short Term or Long Term Hire
Every year in October, Council will write to all long-standing regular hirers to ask for expressions of interest in hiring our facilities in the coming year.
Facilities will be allocated on a needs basis.
Where two community groups bid for the same space, Council will negotiate with the two groups to see if one can be accommodated elsewhere nearby. Council’s final decision on allocations will be based on what is the most practical and fair thing to do by everyone.
Where vacancies exist in the facilities after long-term bookings have been allocated, Council will allocate bookings to community groups who want short-term access. While long-term groups will have priority, Council is flexible in trying to meet long-term as well as short-term needs by seeking cooperation between users.
