We will determine general charges for the facility and these charges may at our discretion vary from time to time.
All payments must be finalised within 28 days of bookings. The City reserves the right to cancel bookings, at their discretion, should payments not be made within 28 days of the hire date. Refer to section 5. Cancellations and Refunds for further detail.
For the hire to proceed, a security bond may be requires, as determined by the city. The bond is security for any damage to the building and/or breach of conditions of hire. The total bond will be refunded to the hirer no earlier than 14 days after the function, provided the hirer has complied with all aspects of the conditions of hire.
Should the cost of repairing damage to the property exceed the bond, we will recover the cost of repairs (including cleaning) from the hirer and the hirer agrees to pay this cost.
The cost of extra cleaning as a result of the function will be deducted from the bond. We will forward an account for additional costs to the hirer within 30 days.
In instances where a bond has not been applied, applicable charges will be raised on a separate invoice.
Any discount is granted on the basis that the hirer abides by the arrangements made as per the signed hall hire application form and that the terms of the conditions of hire are met.
Failure to meet these expectations will render the discount invalid and the hirer will be invoiced for the full hire rate.
Please note: any discount approval is only for a single event unless otherwise stipulated. Discounts are given on a case-by-case basis, dependant on the nature of each individual booking. Therefore, any future events will also require you to apply for discount.
As a requirement of discounted use of our facilities, you are required to acknowledge the City where possible.
A charge of $7 will be applied to invoice reprints requested by the hirer. For regular hirers, any questions or concerns regarding invoices must be raised with the booking office before the due date of the invoice or invoiced fees and charges will stand.
