Plan and stage your event
Events on Council land
If your event is held on Council owned or managed land or at its facilities, you need to submit an event application at least 2 months prior to the event. Events are not permitted to be staged on Council land without Council's written approval.
Depending on the event or its location, you may also need other permits from Council, such as an Occupancy Permit for a Place of Public Entertainment or a Planning Permit.
Events on private or Crown land
If your event is held on private or Crown land, you do not need to submit an event application, however, you may need other permits from Council, such as an Occupancy Permit for a Place of Public Entertainment or a Planning Permit.
This step-by step guide is designed to assist event organisers with the planning and staging a safe and successful event and advise them of any permits, approvals or notifications required.
We recommend event organisers contact the Events Officer at least 2-3 months prior to the event. The Events Officer can advise on requirements, assist with the application process and promotion of the event.
