Do I need a Lease or Licence?

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.

See the Planning Permits and Building Permits pages for more information.

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.
