Public Community Event - Event Notification Form

Do I have to complete an Event Notification Form?

All events occurring throughout the municipality are to be registered with the City through an Event Notification process, this includes any activity or function being held on City land, private land or third party managed land. 

The Event Notification process allows you to notify the City of your intention to hold an event within the City and seek in-principle approval without having to provide all the final details. 

The City will review your concept plan and decide if you are required to complete the formal Event Application form. If your event does not involve other approvals or licences such as food, electrical or facility hire and the like, you may not be required to complete the Event Application Form.
