Facilities Needs Research

The Facilities Needs Research – Strategic Directions for Marrickville is a comprehensive and independent research and consultation project undertaken by Council into facilities needs in the Marrickville area. Adopted in April 2013, the final report provides Council with an important tool for effective financial and infrastructure planning for community facilities. The research is applicable to plans of management for community land, a new section 94 contributions plan, property and asset management plans, leasing policy and operating procedures to meet the present and future requirements of the local community.

Council currently provides a broad range of facilities to the community through direct management; as venues for hire; and as leased facilities. Current uses include arts and culture, childcare, libraries, and the provision of community services. Council has a long history in the provision of a broad facilities portfolio for community use that is accessible through location, cost and function. The community facilities portfolio has developed over time and comprises purpose specific and adaptive use facilities that are located on community, Crown and operational lands. The facilities include town halls, community halls, meeting rooms and a range of small to medium stand alone facilities.
