This form is designed to help Community Groups located in the Yarriambiack Shire to get on the way to planning, organising and staging an event or activity successfully.

Because of changes to laws and guidelines governing the staging of community events and activities, you now should consider a number of important questions before you proceed with your plans.
Even though your planned event or activity may be small scale , there are steps you need to go through. This is to ensure that whatever you’re planning can occur safely and successfully.

Complete this Event Application/Notification Form and once it is filled in and submitted to the Yarriambiack Shire Council, your Event Application/Notification Form will register your interest in staging an event and help determine which services and permits may be required. Submitting the Event Application/Notification Form does not constitute approval to proceed with your event. You will be advised as to what permits you require for your event and whether or not you need to complete and submit additional paperwork.

Please use the generic event guidelines to assist in your planning , some sections may not apply to your event but it will explain the things you should consider in event staging.

The General Manager of Community Development will coordinate an assessment of your event. Event organisers will then be advised of any further process or requirements that may be needed given the specific circumstances and environment applicable to the individual event.
