If you are interested in using these facilities please contact the Council to request the availability of a facility. If vacant, you will then be required to complete a Hire of Council Facilities Form. If you are hiring out the Airport passenger terminal, please complete the Hire of Airport Passenger Terminal Form. Depending on the use of the facility, you may be required to submit a deposit and/or a cleaning bond. You will then be provided with an inspection of the facility prior to use along with a key.
