Planning an event

Find out what you need to do to succesfully plan an event on public land.

The Tasman District is a vibrant region that hosts a wide range of festivals and events. Tasman District Council acknowledge the contribution these events make to the communities social and economic development.

Below we provide some guidelines to help you to plan and manage your event in the Tasman District. Depending on the event, you may be required to apply for consents, permits, licenses, insurance and for booking council venues and parks. You may also need to provide the Council with an event site safety plan and this will be dependent on the risks associated with the event.
