When Council has closed the grounds any Clubs or Schools using the fields will be liable for the full cost of repairs and may lose their agreement with Council.
When Council has deemed the grounds open with Restrictions, Council requires Clubs or Schools (including referees and/or coaches) to make their own assessment as to the suitability of the grounds prior to their use, having regard for the following:
- The potential for injury to players.
- The sport played and the potential for damage to the playing surface.
- The condition of the ground when inspected.
If the grounds are assessed as unsuitable for the intended use - they must not be used and their condition reported to Council immediately.
