The allocation of primary site licences for commercial fitness training activities has changed, and Council will be undertaking a formal allocation process via Quotation. Therefore, Council will not be accepting applications for any primary site licences. The Quotation process will be occurring in February/March 2017 and the sites available for the Quotation process will be published closer to that date.
Information will be distributed to Primary Site Licence Holders in the very near future regarding the process and the quotation requirements. All quotations are advertised via Council’s E-tender portal www.tenderlink.com.au
Commercial Fitness Training Activities in Public Parks
Wollongong offers a great setting for recreational activities including outdoor personal and group fitness training activities.
To effectively manage the use of our parks and reserves, Council has developed a policy and licensing process to address outdoor commercial fitness training activities. The policy helps Council to:
- provide equity of access to public open spaces;
- ensure the community has access to licensed, qualified and insured outdoor fitness operators;
- reduce and manage the potential impact of commercial fitness training activities on public assets;
- minimise public liability concerns; and
- promote active living opportunities.
Commercial fitness trainers wishing to use public parks and reserves for their activities need to obtain a licence agreement with Council and pay an annual fee based on Council’s Fees & Charges. There are two (2) types of licences available depending on group size.
Licensed trainers are issued with a wrist band to differentiate themselves from those who ignore the licensing system and train groups in Wollongong’s parks and reserves without approval. Licensed operaters are listed below in the document Approved Sites and Current Licensees.
Council does not recommend or endorse any trainer or training methods and accepts no responsibility for the actions of trainers.
