Event Organisation and Promotion

What is a Public Event?

"A gathering of people brought together for a common purpose by some pre-arrangement - and which is open (advertised) to the public".

Why does the Shire need notification?

The Health (Public Buildings) Regulations require Local Governments to approve public events.

How much does approval cost?

Council has waived the fee for non-commercial, community and fundraising events.  Commercial event organisers should refer to the Shire's current Schedule of Fees and Charges.

Organising a Public Event

As part of the process you may be required to submit an Event Notification Form.  To discuss your proposed Public Event and the relevant requirements please do not hesitate to contact the Shire’s Community Development Officer or Economic Development Officer.
