Place Of Assembly

Under the Public Health Act 1997, a Place of Assembly Licence is required for any mass outdoor public event with 1000 people or more, present for 2 hours or more.

A ‘public event’ includes but is not limited to, any performance, exhibition, circus, festival, food festival, pageant, regatta, sports event, dance and publicly advertised lecture.

The Council is responsible for assessing Place of Assembly Licence applications to help ensure public events do not pose a risk to the health and safety of the community. It is also your responsibility as an event organiser to ensure you run your event in accordance with the Public Health Act 1997.


Fees are in accordance with the Council’s Fees and Charges schedule and will be invoiced to the applicant.  Fees and Charges can be accessed via the ‘Publications List’ webpage: https://www.centralcoast.tas.gov.au/publications-list/
