How to Plan A Community Event

Community Events Information

If you are planning to run an event on Council-owned land, or one that involves street closures in the George Town Council area, then a number of event planning documents will need to be submitted to Council for review and approval. The applications you may need to submit can depend on where you will be hosting the event, the risks involved, or if you plan on serving or selling food or beverages, to name a few.  

Please note that if you are planning an event on or near the main street, road, or highway you may be required to submit a Traffic Management Plan. We advise you to give us a call to discuss your event prior to commencing your application. 

Below are a number of documents that will aid in your planning. The links include application forms. 

Council also encourages all community organisations to forward details of their upcoming event. Please complete the Events Communication form and return to Council via email :; or deliver to Council at 16-18 Anne Street, George Town.  

You may also wish to apply for a grant to assist you with your event. Community Grants
