Different tenure agreements (the conditions under which land or buildings are held or occupied) are available for not for profit groups, such as:
- Short and long term leases
- Permits or licences
- Management and user agreements
The type of tenure offered by Council will depend on:
- The type of activities to be conducted
- What infrastructure is required
- The suitability of the premises
- How regularly the activity occurs
Your tenure agreement will be one of the most valuable documents to your organisation and it should be kept in a safe place by the committee. If you are thinking of upgrading a facility then make sure you complete an Application for Improvement Works form and email it back to council for approval.
Council has created a set of Guidelines for Community Tenure for your information. These guidelines cover all aspects of leasing or agreements with Council and the associated forms that you may need if you want to occupy Council property.
