Public Community Event - Seating Requirements

There are no legislative requirements to supply seating for patrons at an event, however it is recommended that there is a seating area or rest area provided.

If the event is proposing seating, then keep the following requirements for seating arrangements in mind when designing your event:

  • The minimum distance between rows of seats is 300mm.
  • There shall be no more than 10 seats in a dead end row and no more than 17 seats in rows between aisles.
  • If the distance between rows is increased to more than 500 mm then the length of rows between aisles can be increased. 
  • Aisles must be no less than one meter wide.
  • The sides and rear of raised seating areas must be bounded by guardrails that shall be securely fixed.
