Re-opening of Community facilities

Lithgow Council

Lithgow City Council is re-opening public facilities such as community halls and indoor sports stadiums from 25 October 2021.

This will allow community groups to run activities and indoor sporting events for fully vaccinated people.

“As with the recent re-opening of the J M Robson Aquatic Centre, I am excited to see a return to community sport and for our community groups to get back to doing what they love”, said Lithgow City Council’s Mayor, Councillor Ray Thompson. “These recent months have been a very trying time, however good vaccination rates have been key in allowing us to reopen these facilities. I encourage all those who can to get their jab to do so, and on behalf of our community groups and sporting teams, I thank those who already have. You are the reason we are returning to normal so quickly.”

User groups will require a revised COVID-19 Safety Plan which complies with current NSW Health Public Health Orders. All booking requests must be accompanied by a completed plan, and it is the responsibility of hirers to ensure compliance.

You can find template documents and advice on how to complete a COVID-19 Safety Plan via the website below: Alternatively, Council staff would be very pleased to assist where possible to ensure a prompt return to regular meetings and practice.
