Cost for a sports ground
To hold an event or match on a Council sports ground, a fee is charged based on the grounds maintenance cost. The fee is provided on application.
Example of how costs are calculated ... if a team or club books a complete ground for the winter season only, and that ground cost $80,000 the previous financial year to maintain - the cost will be $2,000 for the winter season use. If only one field is booked - the fee would be $1,000 for the winter season use.
Booking a reserve for a commercial event
Any commercial event or activity is charged a fee based on the type of event.
If you're organising an event on a Council reserve, also refer to our event organising webpage
