Event Planning

Events make a significant contribution to the goals of Council’s 2040 Community Strategic plan to achieve: Our sense of place and identity; a smart and vibrant economy; environmental stewardship; enable sustainable growth; community health, safety and wellbeing; community leadership and collaboration.

Well managed events are an important part of the development of vibrant and sustainable communities, contributing to our social fabric and local economy.
