Council has facilities that can be leased to not-for-profit organisations for the purpose of delivering a range of activities and programs across Logan.
To be eligible to obtain a lease or license for a Council facility, your organisation must:
- be an incorporated association or equivalent
- be a not-for-profit community based organisation
- maintain $20 million public liability insurance
- be able to show how it would meet the financial obligations of a lease or license
Register of Interested Organisations
Council regularly receives requests from sport, recreation and community organisations for assistance in allocation of facilities. Given the high demand for a lease of Council facilities, Council's Sport, Leisure & Facilities Branch maintains a Register of Interested Organisations.
Inclusion on the Register of Interested Organisations means that your organisation will receive notification as and when Council facilities become available for lease.
To be placed on Council's Register of Interested Organisations, please register your Expression of Interest by completing an application form (PDF 3158 KB) or contacting Council on 3412 3412.
For further information, please refer to Council's Guide to Sport, Recreation and Community Leasing in Logan City (PDF 435 KB).
Expressions of interest
As Council facilities become available, Council's Sport, Leisure & Facilities Branch undertakes an Expression of Interest (EOI) process which is used to invite, identify and appoint suitable lessees to Council facilities.
In summary the EOI process is undertaken as follows:
- Organisations listed on Council's Register of Interested Organisations (RIO) will be notified when a facility becomes available.
- An EOI document will be provided which includes details of the facility, the relevant selection criteria that organisations must respond to in their application and details on how to make an application.
- Interested organisations will then have the ability to inspect the facility and submit their application to Council within the nominated timeframe.
- Council will then review all eligible applications based on the selection criteria and recommend preferred applicants for final consideration and approval.
- Unsuccessful applicants will be advised of the decision and will remain on Council's RIO.
At a minimum;
- All applicants must be incorporated under the Associations Incorporated Act 1981 (Qld) or similar legislation prior to a licence or lease being granted.
If you would like further information regarding incorporation, please refer to the Office of Fair Trading website.
- All applicants must provide evidence of public liability insurance in the amount as requested by Council (as of 1 July 2013, the minimum of $20 million).
