1. Overview

Each year we organise and support a number of community events that enable the whole community to come together and celebrate the diversity and vitality of our region. We adopted our Events Strategy in May 2018 and you can download it here(PDF, 6MB).

We support festivals and events that provide opportunities to encourage a sense of community connection and pride, enliven public spaces and promote our region as a vibrant and exciting place to live in and visit. Our Events Guide(PDF, 5MB) will assist you with planning an event in our region.

2. Forms and information for Event organisers

Events on Council land are required to have additional measures as directed by NSW Police.

Local Traffic Committee

Events that need road closures or prescribed traffic controls need to have these approved by Council. They must have the plans reviewed and endorsed by the Local Traffic Committee. Once the Committee have reviewed the documents they need to go to Council to be formally approved. The Local Traffic Committee meets every two months.

Event organisers are encouraged to contact the events team as early as possible with their proposals and seek feedback from the LTC to ensure that completed reports presented for review are satisfactory and not rejected, especially if it is an event that has not been held before.

Local Traffic Committee meeting dates 2022

All documents need to be submitted a minimum of one week prior to the meeting.
