Many community organisations or groups rely on the use of public land to conduct activities. If you, your club, or group has an idea for a project, we want to hear about it.
Talk to us
Start by talking to us about what you have in mind. This discussion is an opportunity to refine ideas and identify any potential barriers prior to gathering information.

Submit your proposal
Once you've spoken to us the next step is to submit your proposal using the online form. The more information you provide, the more efficiently we can assess your proposal. We will assess your proposal and let you know the outcome, if we need more information we will let you know.
When submitting a proposal, make sure you allow plenty of lead time. We set our work schedules and budgets 12 months in advance and assessments can take several weeks.
Review the Recreation and Open Space Strategy and the Delivery Program and Operational Plan to see what projects are already on our workplan. These documents set out the long-range and annual priorities for recreation facilities and open spaces.
You might also take a look at any landscape masterplans for the location or facility that relates to your project.
