The Local Approvals Policy – Events provides guidance to community members wishing to hold activities and events on Council owned land. It helps people understand whether they do or don’t need Council approval.
Council is required to regulate activities on Council owned land and this policy helps Council manage their land. From a community perspective, it provides clarity around what kind of low impact activities and events can be undertaken without the need for approval.
The policy also provides criteria and other things that need to be considered, for activities and events where approval is required. Importantly, this policy relates to parks, sporting fields and open space but not car parks, roads and road reserves.
Council approval is not required for the following activities if you can comply with the relevant criteria:
Small Scale Event
You can apply via the Planning Portal.
Council will require a site plan and written explanation detailing how the activity/event will operate. Depending on the size and nature of the event, additional information may also be required, for example a traffic plan.
