Council to seek feedback on draft Event Policy in May

Published:

Noosa Council is seeking the community’s input on a draft policy for the management of events on public land.

Mayor Tony Wellington said residents and other stakeholders have a month to provide feedback on the draft policy via the Your Say website.

“Our aim with the Event Policy is to provide clearer direction on the future management of events across the shire. We want to ensure that events add to the culture and vitality of our local area, but don’t adversely impact on residents and the environment,” he said.

The draft policy contains provisions to ensure certain areas of the shire aren’t overused for events.

“Council continues to receive increasing numbers of requests to operate events in key areas, particularly Noosa Heads and Noosaville. Setting clear priorities is an effective way to handle those permit applications.

“Our future focus is likely to be quality not quantity,” he said.

The Mayor said Council sought to strike a balance between the use of public land for events and the community’s use of those areas for recreation. Road closures are also an issue of concern for many residents.

“We also want to ensure event organisers are on the same page as the community when it comes to best practice and sustainability goals, such as the phasing out of single-use plastics, recycling, waste reduction strategies and sustainable transport.”

Once the policy is finalised, Council will develop guidelines with practical advice for event organisers to help them comply.

Residents and other stakeholders can either email, send a letter or provide comments on the draft Event Policy via Council’s Your Say Noosa portal at yoursay.noosa.qld.gov.au.

Submissions close June 13.
