I have already seen a poster or advertisement for this event. Has it already been approved?

Approval for an event requiring public consultation is only given after the consultation period has concluded and the event has gone through the approval process.

Adelaide City Council discourages any event from promotions prior to Council approval. In some instances, particularly national tours, there is a need for events or festivals to announce dates in each capital city. This however does not constitute approval for the event.

Will access to Bonython Park/Tulya Wardli be affected during the event?

Access paths through the park will be unaffected by the event.

How will the Park Lands be protected during their stay?

In addition to the standard requirements under the event licence, Lennon Bros Circus will be responsible for minimising impacts on the Park Lands by following Adelaide City Council’s Standard Operating Procedures for Events in the Park Lands.

The event will be responsible for restoring the park to its pre occupation condition at the conclusion of the event. Specifically Lennon Bros has committed to undertaking the following Park Lands protection measures:

  • Implementation of a Remediation Management and Internal Traffic Management Plan to minimise impact.
  • Installation of infrastructure that decreases the need for some heavy vehicles to enter the site such as track matting.
  • Defined areas where event vehicles will not be permitted.
  • Animal penning areas will be moved frequently to minimise impact of grassed areas.
  • Animal Management – Circuses must abide by the SA code of practice for Welfare of Animals in Circuses.

Can I expect noise where I live?

All event music or announcements will be contained within the main big top marquee thus minimising sound transfer to surrounding areas.
Some minor noise is anticipated. Predicted noise levels are within accepted guidelines for an event of this nature.

Lennon Bros is required to abide by a Noise Mitigation plan for this event as defined in Adelaide City Council’s Event Noise Mitigation – Standard Operating Procedures as Events and Musical Festivals with a Music Component.

Is parking available at the event site?

U-Park will be operating car parking at [location] from Monday 2 March to Sunday 3 May 2015. Charges for car parking will apply $16.00 per vehicle. Public transport options are available in the vicinity of Bonython Park/Tulya Wardli.
