Why are these specific events being consulted on and not others?

The events that are included in this consultation pack are those that Adelaide City Council have applications for as of 1 July 2016 that have event planning considerations not covered by the Adelaide Park Lands Event Management Plan. An event application is approved under delegated authority unless it:
  • Will occupy a significant portion of a Park for more than four weeks (including bump in and out).
  • Is seeking road closure of more than 24 hours to utilise an entire site.
  • Is a new event application that would have significant impact on the Park Lands or community. 
Major events that are proposed to occur in Victoria Park / Pakapakanthi (Park 16) or Victoria Square / Tarntanyangga are required to be consulted on due to the Community Land Management Plans for these parks not currently allowing for them.
Refer to Attachment A for the events that Adelaide City Council is seeking feedback on and information about the event planning considerations.
All other events are approved under delegated authority.

What is Council seeking feedback on?

Council is seeking feedback on the event management approaches taken to mitigate the effects of each event that is not covered by the Adelaide Park Lands Event Management Plan. The event planning considerations have been included in Attachment A with the proposed corresponding event management approaches.
Council would like to know if there are any further measures that would lessen the impact of these considerations, and assist in the planning of these events.
