Shared Facility Use Agreement

An essential element of any sharing agreement should be sufficient time to allow all parties to carry out the ongoing maintenance of common facilities in accordance with all standards, codes and rules. The service life of the installations may be extended if accessibility, ease of maintenance and functionality can be maintained in order to support regular and load-free use at an agreed level of use and maintenance. Given the recommended planning process, it is important, in order to take into account co-use, especially in school sites, to provide a coherent development model to ensure consistency, openness and equity. As indicated above, any proposed model must be relevant to the Community and to the adequacy of the bodies to be included. The scope and validity of a subsequent co-use agreement depends on the principles defined at the beginning of the development process. This applies irrespective of whether the installations have been specially built for the Community or whether they are envisaged as part of a wider development possibility. It is therefore necessary to provide for common ovals and facilities at an early stage and to prepare joint agreements in good time before the delivery of both the specialized school and the adjacent area of freedom. It is important that all parties conclude agreements that ensure safety with regard to future obligations, both as regards the financing of the capital costs of buildings, installations and infrastructure and the financing of the recurring costs of maintaining and operating them. The development and use of new common infrastructure in new schools and joint open space projects require well-thought-out and well-founded early planning, while the sharing of existing schools can be carried out immediately and subject to agreed terms of use. .
