Review of Parks and Landcare fees and charges

Public exhibition period: 8 September - 5pm, 6 October 2016

Council is inviting comment on proposed changes to sporting facility fees and charges for specific areas within Caltex Park and some fees for the Dubbo Aquatic Leisure Centre and Barden Park Athletics Facility.

The proposal follows consultation with user groups and reviews of booking applications received. Greater flexibility has been incorporated into the proposed fee structure and more options for the use of particular sporting facilities.

The increases proposed include a $5 increase on 2015/2016 fees for specific areas of Caltex Park and the introduction of new fees and charges including a subsidised Barden Park Athletics Facility Yearly Private Training Permit, new Barden Park Coaching Fees, a Major Event pass, a Pool Party Package and an all-day entry and waterslide access pass for the Dubbo Aquatic Leisure Centre.

The proposed fees and charges for 2016/2017 are detailed in the tables below.
