Terms of lease

All use arrangements will be subject to the terms and conditions of a signed facility user lease agreement.

Limitations to use of the facilities 

Manningham Council will not accept any events which involve gambling, consumption of alcohol or loud music.

Fees and charges

A range of fees and charges are applied to the use of the facility. The fees and charges vary based on the type of user.

Concession rates

In order to qualify for the Concession Rate, your organisation or group need to be registered as a not-for-profit or incorporated organisation or charity. This is verified via your organisation’s ABN or a certificate of incorporation.

No concessions apply for local residents, students or concession-card holders.

Commercial rates

Commercial hire rates will apply to all other organisations or activities.

The current subsidised rate for community (not-for-profit organisations) is $296.05 per annum, GST exclusive (conditional on permitted use under the lease). Please note as the centre is not separately metered for utilities, the new tenant will be responsible for an apportionment of utility costs according to areas (m2) of occupancy.

These rates are highly subsidised by Manningham Council in recognition of the community benefit provided by not-for-profit services who operate from these facilities.  The rental rates are determined by Manningham Council and are subject to change at the expiration of the leased or licenced term.

If the use is for commercial use, then the rate would be assessed by Council’s Manager of Property Services.

User agreements

The hirer is to sign the facility user lease agreement.

Length of tenure

In accordance with the standard lease and licence documents.
