Community Leasing Survey 2020


Sutherland Shire Council owns and manages a large amount of Community and Crown Land across the Local Government Area. Council must manage this land in accordance with the Local Government Act NSW 1993, which requires that all building occupants must be under a valid occupation agreement (lease, licence or hire agreement). The Community Leasing Policy and Pre School Leasing Policy ensures a consistent approach is applied to the various building occupants. Some examples of the community uses we support include sportsgrounds and clubhouses, both for land and water based sports; social activity buildings like bee keepers and woodworkers; community support groups and services; and preschools, to name just a few. In total we have over 180 buildings being occupied by community and sporting groups, often exclusively.

Council is undertaking a review of its Community Leasing Policy and Pre School Leasing Policy and we value your feedback as building users.
