Conditions of use when hiring a Council facility

Health and safety

As part of the rental agreement the hirer accepts legal responsibilities to meet evacuation plans, health and safety responsibilities and to act as the facility warden. All users are required to complete a 'pre use' form before they use the South New Brighton Community Centre. These must then be signed, dated and left in the plastic drop box in the foyer of the centre. The box is cleared once a week.

Hours of hire

South New Brighton is available for hire Monday to Sunday, 8am  to midnight.


The consumption of alcohol is permitted in this facility.

A Special Licence may be required if alcohol is part of your event, e.g. if alcohol is being sold, or if your event is ticketed and alcohol will be consumed at the event.

In general, BYO is permitted at private functions such as Weddings or Birthdays. A Special Licence generally is not required for these types of events.

For most other events BYO may not be a permitted activity (i.e. is unlawful and prohibited)

Find out more about whether you require a special licence by checking the Alcohol Licencing information and checking with the Alcohol Licencing Team directly. Please note that a Special Licence does not authorise BYO.

As the venue hirer and/or event host where alcohol is present at the event, regardless of whether your event requires a special licence or not you still have the responsibility to ensure that you are providing a safe drinking environment at your event. Please read Host Responsibility Guidelines and Tips.

You risk having your venue booking cancelled if you do not meet alcohol licencing requirements. Please note that applications for special licences must be made with the Alcohol Licencing Team at least 20 working days before the date of your event and should where possible be made before you advertise your event.
