Personal Training / Fitness Groups
Cumberland City Council encourages exercise and activities to improve fitness of the community. Council does not recommend or endorse any trainer or training methods and accepts no responsibility for the actions of trainers.
Community members are advised that when participating in commercially provided fitness training they should ensure the operator is appropriately qualified and holds the recommended level of public liability insurance.
Where an instructor/group wishes to use Council open spaces, the below application for Public Space Permit is required to be lodged (fees apply).
All use of sportsgrounds (schools, training, competition, gatherings) which is organised or appears to be organised, must have a booking confirmation from Cumberland City Council.
If unauthorised use of grounds is observed and reported, groups without a booking confirmation, will be asked to move off grounds and provided with information regarding Council’s bookings process.
Further information is available by contacting Council’s Customer Service Centre on 02 8757 9000.
