The Event Management Guide has been designed to assist in the running of public events within the Derwent Valley municipality and explains Council’s processes and requirements.
Council will ideally be notified 6-9 months prior to a planned event to ensure sufficient time for consultation and approval processes. Less than 3-4 months’ notice of a planned event may result in an inability to meet required approval processes.
The guide highlights a number of key issues to consider when organising an event, however it is a guide only and does not cover every issue that may be encountered.
Council is available to provide guidance and direction to help ensure that the event meets all requirements and is run safely and successfully. However, it remains the event manager’s responsibility to seek additional information where required, and to ensure that all approvals have been obtained.
To begin the process of planning your event with Council, please complete the Event Notification Form below, and drop into the Customer Service desk at Council or email to Dvcouncil@dvc.tas.gov.au and we'll be in touch.
