Temporary Events

Livingstone Shire Council has an abundance of parks and beaches that can be utilised for any functions, carnivals and circuses. All events must have an application submitted to Council no later than three months prior to the event.
The following criteria will determine if your event is deemed a Temporary Event and will need to follow the approval process.

Criteria for a Temporary Event
  • The event is open to the public;
  • Exclusive use of the area is required (for private events this means that they only want a particular area and not want to turn up on the day and take a chance of availability);
  • It will be advertised (this includes open invitation emails to an unknown number of recipients);
  • There will be activities that may cause a risk i.e fire twirling, juggling etc
  • Large numbers of people will be in attendance (more than 50), or 
  • A social event for a large club (i.e. a booking for a sporting club/social club and expected attendance is over 100 people).
