Application forms and guidelines
All applicants should download our new interactive Special Event Proposal Form under the 'Event and Venue Space Hire' section on our Bookings page. This is an editable PDF form.
In addition, applicants need to visit our Event Organiser's Toolkit for other planning documents and requirements.
For your proposal to be considered, the Special Event Proposal Form must be completed and submitted to the Trust. The proposal is then assessed by an internal Assessment Committee and approval may be granted.
This process can take up to one month to seek approval, so it is recommended that you submit your proposal as soon as possible.
Fees and charges
The Trust does not have a standard table of fees for event and venue hire due to the variable nature and extent of event applications that it receives.
Event fees are structured based on the information provided within the Special Event Proposal Form including such criteria as:
- the nature of the event
- the infrastructure required
- the duration of the event
- the number of people anticipated to attend
Applicants are welcome to visit the Parklands as part of the process of completing your Special Event Proposal Form to identify preferred venue spaces for your proposed event.
To assist your orientation and understanding of the Parklands, our map pages will help in this process. These maps are both interactive and PDF downloadable maps.
The Trust also requires applicants to be familiar with the specific Regulations covering the Parklands which will assist your planning.
