Have your say on:
  • Events that are being recommended for a multi-year event licence during the period 1 July 2019 to 30 June 2024;
  • A request to close Reconciliation Plaza in Victoria Square /Tarntanyangga for more than 24 hours during the Glendi Greek Festival from 2019 to 2022;
  • The delivery of concerts in Elder Park during the Adelaide Festival Hub from 2020 to 2022 as an addition to Adelaide Festival Corporation’s current multi-year event licence.
Background

Council has the authority under Section 202 of the Local Government Act 1999 (SA) to grant a licence over community land. This includes land that is a park or forms part of a park. A licence provides for the erection or removal of buildings and other structures for activities conducted under the licence. This includes events in the Adelaide Park Lands.

Council is committed to consulting the public on event licence applications in the Adelaide Park Lands before granting approval and also when there is a request to change the conditions of an event licence.

Project Information

Council is keen to secure high quality events in the city (Project 2 of the Adelaide Park Lands Events Management Plan 2016-2020 (APLEMP). To help achieve this aim Council recently called for expressions of interest (EOIs) from event organisers for a multi-year agreement to stage an event in the Adelaide Park Lands. As part of the approval process Council is seeking community feedback on the EOIs received.

Council has also received a request from the organisers of the Glendi Greek Festival to close Reconciliation Plaza in Victoria Square/Tarntanyangga for more than 24 hours during the 2019 festival and for the remaining years of its licence. Additionally, we have received a request from Adelaide Festival Corporation to allow for the delivery of concerts as part of the Adelaide Festival Hub. It is proposed that this occurs for the remainder of their multi-year event licence (until 2022).

Council is committed to consulting with the public on these request before any decisions are made.
