Update on Council managed halls, centres and sporting grounds

Council managed Community Halls and centres are now available for hire and can occupy up to 20 people, or one person per 4 square metres for the entire building (not each room/area).

This includes the following:

  • Yass Memorial Hall (Main Hall & Kitchen annex only)
  • Murrumbateman Recreation Grounds Community Hall
  • Yass Community Centre
  • Sutton Hall

To hire any of the above halls or centres, a COVID-19 plan must be prepared and presented to Customer Service via email or in person at Council’s Administration Building, 209 Comur Street Yass, before booking.

A template for a COVID-19 Plan can be found HERE 

Current training permitted at Yass Valley Council owned sporting facilities until 1 July 2020

As of this week, 20 people per field are now able to train across all Council owned sporting facilities.

This means at larger complexes like Walker Park, there can be four groups of 20 (total of 80 per site) at any one time, as long as they maintain social distancing and stay on different fields. The Netball Courts at O’Connor Park has two levels, which means 20 people can train per level (a total of 40 people at the facility at any time).

User groups are politely requested to collaborate with each other regarding training times to meet requirements. It is advised to stagger training times or days to meet the restrictions.

A template for a COVID-19 Safety Plan has also been developed by the NSW Government for community sport competition, training and contact activities, permitted to recommence from 1 July. Many sport and recreation organisations may have already developed their own plans and protocols for the resumption of activities. Organisations are still encouraged to check the NSW Government COVID-19 Safety Plan template, however, to ensure key considerations are addressed in the development of their plans and protocols. Find the template HERE 

Organisations are reminded that until changes come into effect, they are required to comply with the current Public Health Order and follow the recommended physical distancing measures of 1.5 metres while training in groups of up to 20 people.
