Activity Centres & Place Managers

About the SIG


This SIG was established in May 2006 to provide a network for Local Government officers responsible for managing a Town Centre or implementing Activity Centre policy on behalf of Councils. It meets every two to three months, with meetings hosted by different Councils. Its primary functions are to:

  • Act as a forum to discuss the Activity Centres program
  • Develop an understanding of what is happening in respective Activity Centres
  • Share information and ideas on Activity Centre projects
  • Provide a networking opportunity for Local Government officers
  • Lobby, advocate and promote Activity Centre programs
  • Act as a central group for Activity Centre queries in Local Government
  • Host Activity Centre training, speakers, seminars and workshops
  • Work in partnership with the State Government implementing Activity Centre programs and policies

  Online community


This SIG is supported by an online community. We believe that accessing knowledge from individuals who work in a similar environment is invaluable and should never be underestimated. Our communities are only for people working in Local Government and there are many benefits to participating in them. They are a great way to keep in touch in between meetings, by asking your fellow SIG colleagues questions and sharing resources. You can also see who else is involved in the SIG and get in touch with them quickly.  Agendas, minutes, presentations and other SIG resources will also be posted on the online community.
