Guide to Managing Your Events
Events form an important component of community life delivering social and economic gains. To ensure the smooth running and safety of an event, organisers must undertake careful planning and preparation.
This Information Pack is designed to assist in the planning of your event, activity, stall or function that will take place on Council land. It is important that right from the start of the planning process, your committee is aware of the need to manage and mitigate any risks undertaken in the conduct of your event. Whilst you must have public liability insurance, this should not in any way be seen as a waiver of your responsibilities regarding the safety and security of your participants and suppliers.
It should be noted that this guide is only a starting point for event organisers. It is not a manual showing you how to organise an event – it outlines some of the issues you may need to address.
