The current licence agreements for the management of the City’s two community gardens which are due to expire shortly. These agreements are between the City of Canterbury Bankstown (Council) and Canterbury City Community Centre (4C’s) and Riverwood Community Centre (RCC). Details of the agreements are:
- 4C’s manage the Lakemba Community Garden located at Jubilee Reserve, 14 Bellevue Avenue, Lakemba which is part of the land comprised in certificate of title Lot 3 in DP 432109 for the purpose of operating a community garden; and
- RCC manage the Riverwood Community Garden located at Riverwood Community Centre, 151 Belmore Road North, Riverwood and part of the land comprised in certificate of title Lot 5 in DP 808180 for the purpose of operating a community garden.
Council has drafted and is now exhibiting new draft licence agreements with Canterbury City Community Centre and Riverwood Community Centre for the management of the Lakemba community garden and Riverwood community garden respectively.
We are also proposing this new standard licence agreement template will be used for all future agreements with organisations that will propose to manage community gardens on Council land.
The project is aligned to City’s Community Strategic Plan in that we are continuing to the support two local community organisations and their respective services/programs to the community through the delivery of community gardens to their respective patrons.
