Event expression of interest
The first step to getting our approval for your event is to tell us about it by completing the expression of interest form below.
After we received your application we will:
- assess the activities you are proposing and their impact
- help you to understand what is required to make sure your event meets local laws, legislation and regulations
- email you within 5 days and tell you what permits and approvals you will need for your proposed event
