Restrictions and safety

Council is in the process of reopening its community centres and facilities to existing community hirers in line with NSW Health advice.

Due to restrictions, venues have a reduced capacity of two square metres for each person. NSW Government restrictions continue to apply to some activities.

Council staff will work directly with regular hirers to reconfirm or amend bookings which were temporarily on hold. Hirers will need to provide a COVID-19 safety plan for their activity for Council's approval, and sign an amended booking agreement before activities can resume.

For bookings enquiries, email or phone 9392 5000 and ask to be put through to the Venues Booking Team.
