Prices for Council Places and Spaces

Council owns many places and spaces that can be accessed by people and groups.

We want to understand what our community values about our places and spaces. We’ll use this information to review our pricing principles and frameworks for leasing, licencing or hiring our facilities.

We recognise that when you or your community group accesses our facilities, you experience a whole range of benefits, such as meeting people, making friends, being physically active, learning new things, or being part of a community group.

Providing these places and spaces comes at a financial cost to Council. The intent of this engagement is to help us understand the ‘social return’ on the financial investment.

A greater understanding of the social value of our facilities will help inform the development of a set of pricing frameworks that support a healthy and connected community.

So please tell us how you or your group use our places and spaces and what you benefit you or your members get out of using them.

After we get this feedback, we’ll be doing a second round of consultation later in the year on a draft pricing framework and policies.

Facilitated group discussion

We invite you to express interest in attending a facilitated group discussion, where we can learn in depth, more about how you use and enjoy our spaces and places. The session is at Box Hill Town Hall on Wednesday 5 October from 6pm-7.30pm. Light refreshments will be available. Please advise if you have any dietary requirements.

To express an interest in attending the focus group, please email spaces.places@whitehorse.vic.gov.au
