Sporting Club Allocation Information
Sporting Club Information
The Hills Shire Council is responsible for the planning and management of all recreational facilities within The Hills Shire including usage of parks & reserves and sports facilities.
Council can offer assistance to local sporting and recreation groups on committee management, marketing and promotion, sponsorship, business planning, special event planning and fundraising. This is done though Council’s Training Program for Sports Clubs.
The Hills Shire Council is home to over 150 sporting and recreation groups that regularly use Council parks, sporting ovals and reserves for training and competition.
The Hills Shire Council has a seasonal ground allocation program to ensure all groups have equal access to our multi-use facilities.
With increasing demand for the use of The Hills Shire Council’s sporting grounds from current Clubs, Council is unable to guarantee the availability of grounds to newly formed Clubs or the possibility of increasing an existing club's allocation.

Plans of Management
A plan of management is an important document that provides information for the effective long term management of public open space. It also establishes directions for planning, resource management and maintenance of public land.
A series of generic plans of management have been developed by The Hills Shire Council to comply with the requirements of the 1993 Local Government Act. This Act was amended to promote best management practices of environmentally sensitive land and to curb the inappropriate alienation of community land for private purposes. Accordingly, Council’s original generic plans have been updated to incorporate the requirements of the amendments.
Below are the plans of management that have been developed by council:
