Events

Council recognises that events are an important part of our community recovery. To assist with navigating events as restrictions ease, the Victorian Government has introduced the Public Events Framework.

All public events must be registered with the new Victorian Government Public Events Framework (PEF) prior to completing the NGSC online Event Registration.

This is the very first step. Event organisers must complete the public event self assessment to determine if their event is Tier 1, Tier 2 or Tier 3, complete a COVIDsafe Plan or COVIDsafe Event Checklist as required.

If you are booking a council venue for a public event you still need to register with the Victorian Government Public Events Framework.

When completing the public event self assessment please note that your event will not be covered by an existing COVIDSafe Plan held by the council venue.

Completing a COVIDsafe Plan or COVIDsafe Event Checklist as required by the PEF is the responsiblity of the event organiser.

A public event is an organised public gathering for a common purpose which is conducted on a one-off or periodic basis, open to members of the public, publicly announced or advertised, and may be subject to a specific licence, approvals or permits. A detailed definition of a public event and examples are available at https://www.coronavirus.vic.gov.au/public-events
