Easier licencing for public reserve events

Mayor Mathew Hatcher says a new proposal for the licencing of events taking place on Eurobodalla’s public reserves will make life easier for organisers.

“Currently, many events held on our public reserves are taking three months or more to licence,” Cr Hatcher said.

“If an event is only on Saturday, the bump in and out to set up fencing, portaloos or marquees – usually only delivered and collected on weekdays – means it is considered as four days, requiring a licence and public notification.

“We’re proposing to grant 5-year licences for these events; they will be approved just the once, not annually, providing more certainty to organisers.”

The proposal applies to events held at Corrigans Beach Reserve, Batemans Bay Foreshore, Hanging Rock, Mackay Park, Moruya Riverside Park, Moruya Showground, Bill Smyth Oval, NATA Oval and Quota Park.

“We want to know what you think and we’re taking your feedback up until Friday 1 September,” Cr Hatcher said.
