Occupying Council property

A number of different tenure agreements (the conditions under which land or buildings are held or occupied) are available for not for profit (NFP) groups, such as:

  • short and long term leases
  • permits or licences
  • management and user agreements, or
  • a combination of the above.

The type of tenure offered by Council will depend on:

  • the type of activity undertaken
  • what infrastructure is required
  • the suitability of the premises, and
  • how regularly the activity occurs.
