Brisbane City Council recognises the valuable role community organisations play in providing the community with high-quality, safe and accessible participation opportunities.

Council allocates designated land and facilities to the Brisbane community via leases, licences, or other tenure arrangements for sport, recreation, cultural and community purposes. We provide these tenure options to maximise the participation of organisations in community life.

Council is responsible for the allocation, lease management and administration of all community facilities across Brisbane.
