Facility Management Register
Sport and Recreation is integral to people's daily life and they rely on quality sport and recreation facilities to help them to continue their healthy and active lifestyles.
Logan City Council is fortunate to have a large number of quality sport and recreation facilities that are a key feature of our successful sport and recreation industry.
The community expects facilities to be safe and well maintained, that reflect value for money and a reason to keep coming back.
It is vital that anyone who is responsible for the management and maintenance of a sport and recreation facility has a Facility Management Plan in place.
The Sport and Recreation Team have developed this Facility Management Register as a starting point for clubs to develop a
Facility Management Plan.
It is a reference tool that will become an important part of your facility management and when applied, it is hoped will reflect your clubs desire to achieve good corporate governance.
