Events held on Council Land Policy

Maroondah City Council delivers and supports a number of free festivals and events for the community. In addition to the events that are Council run or supported, there are many events that are held on Council managed or owned land that are run by the community.

There has been a recognised need for Council to develop a set of standards and procedures related to community organisations and Council Officers managing events held on Council land. The level of event planning required for individual events may differ greatly and this policy and supporting documentation, the Events Planning and Procedure Handbook, provides a clear framework for event organisers to maintain safe, successful, well-planned and documented events.

The policy aims to:

  • provide a clear framework, that will guide community organisations and Council Officers through an approval process to run events on Council owned and managed land
  • ensure that community organisations and Council Officers undertake appropriate planning processes to effectively deliver successful, well-documented and safe events
  • promote the incorporation of sustainable practices through the conservative and efficient use of resources and alternate use of renewable resource options
  • support access, equity and choice, maximising opportunities for all sectors of the community to participate in events
  • articulate the requirements event organisers must meet in seeking Council approval for use of Council owned or managed land.
