Community Asset Committees

Volunteer run Community Asset Committees manage a number of halls and recreation reserves for the benefit of their local community on behalf of Council.

  1. To ensure fairness in access and use of the asset.
  2. To ensure the assets and surrounds are clean and presentable and manage general maintenance of buildings, furniture and fittings.
  3. To be a point of contact for the public with respect to the operation, maintenance, development and improvements of the asset.
  4. Support the development of the local community through activation of the asset.

Volunteering and community participation is an important avenue through which Council and the community collaborate to deliver a range of services.

Community based committees allows for and encourage:

  • delegation of functions, duties and powers to the community, providing direct community involvement, accountability and ownership for properties and projects;
  • networking and resource sharing between people working towards a common goal; and
  • strengthening of the sense of community within the Shire.
