Community Facilities

We are working with University of Technology Sydney (UTS) Institute for Public Policy and Governance to develop a Community Facilities Needs Study and Strategy.

About the Study

The Study will take a close look at our City’s demographic profile, our current community facilities, provision and standards, and usage patterns. We want to hear from the community and hirers to discover what works well and what could be improved in the future. This Study will inform the development of the Strategy, which will guide the principles and future provision, management and activation of community facilities that will benefit the Shellharbour community now and in the future.

About the Strategy

The Strategy will consider some of the current Council owned and/or managed community facilities and also consider future investment within a range of facility types. This may include:

  • Halls, function and event spaces (including Scout and Girl Guide Halls)
  • Baby, parent and child centres
  • Club houses and amenity rooms
  • Surf lifesaving clubs
  • Youth centres
  • Senior citizen centres
  • Community and neighbourhood centres
  • Arts and cultural centres

Under 'frequently asked questions' you can view the list of included facilities. There are a number of existing plans and strategies that will complement this Strategy.

Lets Chat

Over the past three months, a survey was open asking for feedback about our community facilities from users and service providers. Thank you to everyone that has shared their ideas and comments. Over the next few weeks we will be hosting 10-minute phone surveys asking residents about how they use our facilities, what they like & don’t like, & what they would like to see in the future.
