Management of Linton Shire Hall EOI

Share this:

Expressions of Interest are invited from residents or community group/s to form a Committee of Management for the management of the Linton Shire Hall, located 68 Sussex Street, Linton.



Golden Plains Shire Council is inviting local residents to guide the management, activation and future use of the Linton Shire Hall.

Once home to the old Shire of Grenville, the historic building in the heart of Linton was most recently used as a limited Customer Service Centre, meeting space and office for Council. Following an upgrade to Council’s Smythesdale Customer Service Centre at The Well to allow for a full-time service, customer services were transitioned out of the Linton Shire Hall.

In order to ensure the building remains active and accessible to the community, Council is inviting interested residents or community groups to form a Committee of Management. The Committee will enter into a Management Agreement with Golden Plains Shire Council to manage and activate the facility, including facilitating community bookings and usage of the building’s rooms.

Applicants to join a Committee of Managment will be considered based on the following criteria:

  • The applicant is committed to delivering a model that encourages and facilitates further community use of the facility for local events, activities, business opportunities and continued use by community groups
  • The applicant has an interest in, and commitment to the Linton community.

Council will facilitate the development of the Management Agreement with the appointed committee, and undertake a supported transition to a community management model. For further information on the roles and responsibilities, a copy of the Management Agreement used by Council is available upon request.

Engagement Update

Engagement Update: 

Council is holding an Open Day from 4 to 6pm on Thursday, 14 January 2021, for residents to visit and inspect the building, and to find out more about guiding the management, activation and future use of the historic building.
