Allocation process

Bayside Council is committed to ensuring all fields and venues are allocated fairly by assessing applications for the following:

  • All outstanding club fees and charges must be paid to be eligible for allocation of fields and / or venues.
  • Priority for allocation is given to locally based clubs and sporting organisations that focus on:
    • grass roots participation
    • promoting, enabling and supporting participation from our diverse community
    • returning clubs and sporting organisations
    • traditional summer sports 
  • A growing population means there is a higher demand for fields and venues.
  • Some facilities are unavailable due to redevelopment and improvement works, decreasing available fields and venues.
  • Bayside Council retains the right to:
    • approve all or some of the bookings requested
    • adjust booking dates, locations, and times in consultation with the applicant
    • approve shared or casual use of seasonally allocated fields and facilities

Contact if you have any questions, or if you need help submitting your seasonal request.
