The Fraser Coast has many unique locations suitable for holding different types of events and activities. If your event has any of the following elements, various documentation and approvals will be required:
- Food vendors;
- Serving or selling alcohol;
- Signage and advertising;
- Temporary road closures;
- Traffic and parking management plans;
- Events on Council-controlled land, venues or other infrastructure (including leased areas); or
- Events requesting Council services such as waste collection and disposal.
Please note that the process for these approvals may involve a number of Council departments, the Queensland Police and other state authorities. Ensure you have allowed enough time to discuss your event with Council's Event Officer before you proceed with planning.
It is recommended to contact Council at least four (4) months before your planned event date. If you are planning a large-scale event, you should allow at least 12 months to ensure enough time to address all event elements and potential issues.
Council’s Event Officer will be able to provide information on event permits, approvals, and requirements for event preparation, safety and notification to stakeholders. There may also be additional resources and information that will be useful for your event planning.
To contact Council's Event Officer, please complete an online enquiry above or complete a hard copy enquiry form and return to Council.
