Those planning to hold an event that utilises public land or facilities in Collie will need to complete the Shire of Collie Event Application Package, which provides a step-by-step guide to successful event planning.
The Department of Health has published guidelines for concerts, events and gatherings and other publications relevant to event planning, which is recommended reading for anyone planning an event. The Shire of Collie uses these guidelines in assessing event applications, but recognises that the requirements for each event should be related to the particular circumstances and type of event.
It is important to complete the Events Application Package two or preferably three months before the event so that approvals required from the Shire and relevant state government authorities (e.g. for road closures etc.) can be issued in time and, if needed, the Shire can organise to roster additional staff for the event (e.g. for bin pick-ups).
