Re-opening of Community Halls

Lithgow City Council will be re-opening community halls as of the 15th June 2020 in line with easing of NSW Health restrictions.

As restrictions continue to ease, Lithgow Council would like to advise that community halls will be permitted to open from the 15th June 2020.
As mandated by the State Government, this reopening will be accompanied by a set of strict guidelines incorporated within a Safety Plan compiled by Council which aims to protect the safety of the public / user groups. These operating restrictions will include the following:
