Covid-19 Information and Updates

As of 30th March, Council offices are closed to the general public. Although we are no longer doing face to face we can still assist you on phone, email, by post or if you drop a letter in our new post box outside the Queenstown office.

Events around Covid-19 are unfolding rapidly. Each day we will provide updates on where to access best government information around the pandemic, effects on Council services and community and information on economic support and operating local businesses. Please stay safe, practice social distancing and good hygiene.

Hire of Council Facilities

Council has a variety of facilities available for public use across the municipality catering for both recreational and social activities.  With such a large number of facilities to manage there are procedures in place to ensure those wishing to access the facilities are able to use them as easily as possible.  For many reasons these facilities are often not left open for people to access and use without any monitoring or control.

Council must know who is using a facility to ensure it is not double-booked and most importantly, we need to ensure the safety of users.  If you or your organisation need to use a Council facility, please contact us as early as possible to start the booking process – we do our best to have the facility available but early bookings are good to avoid disappointment.

An Application for Use form is available from the Council office and website.  Applicants are required to provide (where applicable) copies of insurance policies, alcohol permits and rosters along with risk management plans.  This process is also applicable to organised events in open spaces such as parks and reserves.  A booking cannot be confirmed until all required documentation is received by Council and as such we recommend not advertising your event until this confirmation is provided.

Council staff will always contact you should the facility already be booked, or if information has been missed off the application.  Details regarding any applicable fees are located below, along with application forms.  To make a booking please contact Council on (03) 64714 700.
