Many thanks for your interest. This consultation is now closed.

Council owns and manages a range of different properties that support services and programs for our community. As owner and custodian of these properties and assets, we are undergoing a significant review of how we manage, maintain and lease to address significant issues we face now, to ensure a sustainable property portfolio that will deliver benefits to the community and Council into the future.

We are developing a new property policy to ensure a sustained approach to managing our properties so that, as our community's needs evolve, we continue to meet these needs into the future.

Why we need a new policy

  • Our properties and assets are ageing and we lack a clear plan on how to manage and maintain the assets
  • Our population is growing and needs are rapidly changing – we need to be able to plan now for the future
  • Our leasing and allocation of properties is not financially sustainable and lacks equity and transparency; and
  • Our current property policy is over 10 years old and does not reflect best practice or the changing community, environmental, financial, technological and legislative environment.
