Event planning guide


A guide for organisers of events

The Loddon Shire Council is committed to ensuring events hosted within the municipality are of the highest possible standard in relation to safety and delivery.

Organising an event can be a complex task. Council has a number of departments that are responsible for authorising approval for different elements of events.

This practical guide has been produced to assist event organisers to understand event requirements and the applicable approval for different elements of events.

The processes involved will differ per event. A smaller event might require less approvals compared to a larger event which might attract more than 500 people. The information on this page should be used solely as a guide. The main aim is to ensure that events are properly assessed, and that all the applicable approvals are sought.

There maybe permits or information that have not included in this guide. If you are aware of any that need to be included please contact Manager Organisation Development on (03) 5494 1202.
