Community Facilities Study

You play an important role in helping to shape the future of Woollahra's community facilities.

Community facilities are public places where members of our community gather for recreational, educational, artistic and social activities. Some are staffed by Council (e.g. libraries, community centres, preschools) or community organisations (e.g. Holdsworth, Critical Path); others are unstaffed (e.g. community halls, spaces, rooms for hire).

You can help shape the future of Council’s community facilities us by telling us how you'd like to use them and what you'd like them to offer. We want to hear your experience, ideas and aspirations for the future of community facilities so we can plan to meet changing community needs into the future.

Having your say is easy as 1, 2, 3…4.

1. Register for Your Say

2. Share your ideas about the future of community facilities using the ‘Ideas’ tab below.

3. Take our short survey.

The ‘Hirer’s Survey’ is for anyone who has ever hired spaces in one of our community facilities.

The ‘General Survey’ is for anyone who has been to one of our community facilities, e.g. attended a class or workshop, or visited the library.

Never visited a Council community facility? We’d like to know why not, and what we could do to encourage you to use them. Our General Survey is for you, too.

4. If you'd rather take the survey and share your ideas in person, come along and chat to our Community and Library staff the week of 8 April. You can find the locations, dates and times under ‘Key Dates’ on this page.

    Overall, 147 community members contributed to our surveys.

    We also had a great response to our $100 Opal Card competition, where we asked you to describe your community in three words. We had some fantastic answers and it was difficult to choose, but in the end we agreed a winner:

    Lynda Glen described her suburb of Double Bay as relaxing, cosmopolitan and convenient.

    We're inclined to agree - Congratulations Lynda!
