NOTES: If you have ticked yes to either of the above questions, then it is likely that you will need a Place of Public Entertainment Permit (POPE).
A (POPE) is required under the Building Act 1993 and is defined as an area used for public entertainment which is greater than 500m2 under Building Regulation 2018 (Regulations 186).
It is essential that the event organiser discuss this with a Council officer before completing this section to ensure that the application has been completed correctly.
MARQUEES, TENTS AND OTHER STRUCTURES
NOTES: If you have a large structure over 100m2, scaffolding, stages or platforms then a Victorian Building Authority Occupancy Permit may be required.
In general, pegging marquees is not permitted on Council Land. For standard 3 X 3 metre and 6 X 3 metre marquees, please ensure that there is at least 40kg of weights on each leg for marquees that have walls and 20kg weight on each leg for marquees without walls.
SITE PLAN: Please mark the location of any marquees, tents, structures, platforms, scaffolding or seating stands on your site plan.
NOTES: A general rule of thumb is to provide 1 Male WC per 200 persons and 1 Female WC per 100 persons. Wash basins should be provided at 1 per 150 persons and drinking fountains at 1 per 150 persons. These ratios will be affected by the duration of the event, time of year/day and whether alcohol is served.
SITE PLAN: Please mark the location of any toilet facilities or drinking fountains on your site plan.
Many of the open spaces within Wangaratta have permanent bins, managed by Council. These facilities are for use by normal park patrons. For events it is your responsibility as an event organiser, to ensure that there are bins available for the number of people attending your event.
NOTES: Council only accepts solid general waste and will not accept offensive or hazardous waste. It is recommended that food and beverage vendors remove all waste and packaging from site to reduce the number of bins you will require as an event organiser.
Council will only provide bins where equal numbers of general waste and recycling is requested. Council will deliver bins to the event site on the closest business day to your event. Bins will be collected as per normal scheduled waste collection. Should additional bin empties, collection or deliveries be required outside of these scheduled times, additional charges may apply.
Green Waste services may be supplied where an event actively manages the collection of green waste. Green waste bins should be monitored to ensure that no contaminants are added, and bins are kept separate to general waste and recycling until collection. Please note that currently green waste services are limited to specific areas of the community. This service may not be available to your area.
SITE PLAN: Please mark the location of proposed bin collection points, additional waste areas or skip bins on your site plan.
