Council is seeking submissions from interested community groups or organisations to enter into a lease agreement to occupy and manage the Menzies Creek Hall located at 1 Menzies Road, Menzies Creek 3159, for a community purpose.
The building, which includes hall space, office area and storage rooms, kitchen and toilet amenities (including child-friendly amenities suitable for pre-school use), has traditionally been used as a community hall for both community activities and events, and as the location for the Menzies Creek Preschool (as long-standing hirer).
The hall grounds contains a publicly accessible playground and will remain open for public use (except at times that conflict with Hall uses). As a result, maintenance for the repair and replacement of playground equipment would remain with Council.
The successful organisation would be offered a five (5) year sub-lease to occupy and manage the premises for the purposes outlined in the EOI, subject to statutory processes pursuant to the Local Government Act 2020 (if required).
