Activities Approval Policy

At the September Council meeting it was resolved to place the Activities Approval Policy on public exhibition for 28 days, public comment will be taken until 5pm 16 November 2020.
Activities Approval Policy (LocalGovernment Act 1993)

The purpose of this Policy is to establish and outline specific activities that may be carried out without the
need to obtain approval from Council under certain circumstances, and to set criteria for those activities
where approval from Council is required.
The objectives of the Policy are to:
 Make our towns and villages more liveable and friendly.
 Enhance the character of the urban environment.
 Provide for the appropriate use of footpaths, plazas and public areas that will;
o Contribute positively to the streetscape character,
o Boost trade for retailers,
o Enhance opportunities for social interaction
o Promote activities that are compatible with other community uses of the public space
o Ensure safety and accessibility for all users.
The Activities Approval Policy has been developed and adopted under Chapter 7, Part 3 of the Local
Government Act 1993 (the Act). The Policy is divided into three parts:
 Part 1: Exemptions from activity approvals
 Part 2: Criteria for activity approvals
 Part 3: Other matters relating to activity approvals
This Policy applies to the activities requiring approval from Council as listed in Section 68 of the Local
Government Act 1993, and sets out the circumstances in which Council will not require an activity approval
to be obtained.
