If you are planning to conduct an event or market on public land (outside a designated event venue or sporting facility) Dubbo Regional Council requires an application form to be submitted at least 6 months prior.

Major Event Application Form

The Major Event Application Form is required if you are staging your event, or part thereof, on a Council road, footpath or park. This form does not need to be completed if the event is being held on a designated event venue or sporting facility. All annual events must re-submit the application form each year at least six (6) months prior.

Applications should be submitted between six (6) and twelve (12) months in advance.

IMPORTANT: Are you staging your event on a road, or do you expect that your off road event will have an impact (parking, traffic congestion) on the road network? If so, please complete the Special Event Transport Management Plan. This must be submitted with the Major Event Application Form at least six (6) months prior to your event. It is important that you reference the Special Event Transport Management Plan in your Risk Management Plan as Council, Transport for NSW and Police will need to sight to assess what actions you are taking to mitigate risk based on use or impact on the road network.
