Bookings and tenure agreements

Council operates facilities under a COVIDSafe Plan. They are open to bookings as normal. Events held at the facilities must comply with COVIDSafe guidelines.

If a council facility is subject to a tenure agreement, council expects that lessees adhere to all state and federal government restrictions, including social distancing rules.

Police are enforcing restrictions and can issue fines for failure to comply.
