Priority of access

If there are more than one requests for a venue the following criteria will be used: 

  • Continuity of use (if they have been using the same venue and time slot for more than 3 years) 
  • Proximity to the establishment (if one of the groups can clearly demonstrate that a larger proportion of their participants live closest to the venue)
  • ClubSport Accreditation (priority would be given to a club which had achieved ClubSport Accreditation).
  • Contribution to City Council policies (i.e. the extent to which the group or activity contributes to the delivery of City Council policies, including the Learning Strategy; Cultural Strategy; Sport and Physical Activity strategy; and Community Learning and Development national priorities).

Please read our priority criteria:


The cost to hire our spaces is dependent on the venue and if you are eligible for any discounts.
