Council considers requests from the community to create publicly accessible community gardens on Council owned or managed community (or operational) land.
What is a Community Garden?
For the purpose of this policy, a community garden is defined as:
- Open space land that is generally unused passive space
- Used by not-for-profit (NFP) community based groups to produce flowers and/or food primarily for the consumption or enjoyment of participants
- It contributes to the health and wellbeing of the wider community
- Provide a range of social benefits
Community Gardens Policy
Council has adopted a Community Gardens Policy to provide a framework for a land use agreement and is designed to assist the decision making process for granting of use of community land, and to act as a guide to community groups wishing to submit an application to develop a community garden.
