Community Asset Committees

Colac Otway Shire Council acknowledges and sincerely thanks all Community Asset Committee members for making such an important contribution to the management of community facilities in Colac Otway Shire.

Community Asset Committee members willingly volunteer and apply their skills and experience to ensure that the provision of public halls, recreation reserves and sporting facilities contribute to the health and wellbeing of communities throughout Colac Otway Shire.

Community Asset Committees manage community assets for the purpose of:

  1. Conducting a range of activities that enhance the health and wellbeing, physical activity, social interaction and cultural development of the community. Ensuring the equitable, fair and appropriate allocation of facilities whilst optimising use of the land, buildings and structures to maximise community benefit.
  2. Ensuring that the community assets and activities are accessible and inclusive for all.
