Event Organisers Toolbox

The Event Organisers Toolbox has been developed, and is continuously reviewed, to assist event organisers who are planning on staging an event in the Dubbo Region.

Before you start planning your event, we strongly recommend that you reference the NSW Government Event Starter Guide. The Guide will help you navigate the event planning elements such as risk, health, security, volunteers and traffic.

If you are considering holding your event on public land (excluding designated event venues and sporting facilities) Council requires event organisers to complete a Major Event Application Form. 

Major Event Application Form (PDF 1.6MB)

The timely submission of this form will enable Council to review the event activity, provide feedback and ultimately approve the event with sufficient lead time. Please adhere to the following timelines:

Document Required  Submission 
Major Event Application Form                            Due at least six (6) months prior to the event
Certificate of Currency  Due at least eight (8) weeks prior to the event
Risk Management Plan  Due at least eight (8) weeks prior to the event   

Additional information is required by events staged on or impacting the roads network. Transport for NSW and NSW Police are required to sight documentation six (6) and three (3) months prior to the event. If your major event will be held on a road or will impact the road network (parking, traffic congestion) please adhere to the following timelines:

Document Required  Submission 
Major Event Application Form   Due at least six (6) months prior to the event
Special Event Transport Management Plan      Due at least six (6) months prior to the event
