Council property may used for a range of purposes as follows:
All Council-owned or managed land intended to be leased or licensed is open for public comment.
A lease or licence is formal agreement for permission to occupy Council-owned or Council-managed land for a particular purpose. Council has a policy which sets out the many types of occupations that need a formal agreement. To occupy Council-owned or managed land, you need public liability insurance of at least $20 million. If you are planning to construct a building or change the current use of the land you may need other approvals as well as a formal agreement – such as a planning permit or building approval.
The 'Leasing and Licencing Policy for Council owned Land and Council managed land' may be viewed on the Council Policies page.
All Council-owned land or Council-managed land intended to be leased or licensed is open for public comment.
