Management and Operation of Adelaide Hills Recreation Centre and/or Mountain Pool

Management and Operation of Adelaide Hills Recreation Centre and/or Mountain Pool
May 20, 2017

Mount Barker District Council (Council) invites Expressions of Interest (EOI) from Registrants to undertake the management and operation of the Adelaide Hills Recreation Centre located at 2 Howard Lane, Mount Barker SA 5251 (Centre) and/or the management and operation of the Mount Barker Mountain Pool (Pool) located at Druids Avenue, Mount Barker.

Council will enter into a separate agreement (Contract) for the Centre and/or the Pool with the successful Registrant or Registrants.

The term of each Contract shall be agreed between the parties. The Mount Barker District is located approximately 30 minutes east of metropolitan Adelaide in the Mount Lofty Ranges. Covering an area of 597 square kilometres, the District is part of the region that is pursuing World Heritage Listing for its world class landscape and farming heritage.

The township of Mount Barker operates as a regional service centre providing a wide diversity of education, retail, commercial, institutional and business activities and services. Mount Barker, along with Littlehampton and Nairne is experiencing high and sustained growth that is likely to continue for many years.

The Mount Barker 2035 District Strategic Plan identifies that the ability to access arts, recreational, sporting and general community participation opportunities has a strong bearing on residents' wellbeing and connection with their local community and that providing additional community, recreational and sporting facilities needs to be at the forefront of future planning for the District. Expressions of Interest will be received until 5.00 pm CST on 30th June 2017.

The Council will conduct a site briefing commencing at 2.00 pm on 29th May 2017 at the Adelaide Hills Recreation Centre followed by a visit to Mount Barker Mountain Pool.
