Use of Public Land guidelines and application forms.
If you want to run an event or activity that uses Council owned or managed land you will find all the information needed to make an application in our Guidelines to filming in the Bega Valley Shire Procedure. To view the procedure visit our Public Policies page and search for 'use of public land'.
This includes any event or activity, including filming, that uses Council’s footpaths, roadways, parks, sporting fields and other Council owned or managed land.
The procedure aims to provide a balance between the needs of the community and the activity/event organiser.
Before you start your application it is important to note that if your event or activity involves the closure, or part closure, of any Council road you will first need to seek approval from the Bega Valley Traffic Committee.
To apply to undertake filming or photography on public land, please read our Guidelines to filming in the Bega Valley Shire procedure and complet the Filming and Photography application form (pdf). To view the procedure visit our Public Policies page and search for either 'film or 'film and video'.
Visit sporting fields for information on bookings.
For information relating to events on Crown land please contact Council’s Property Services team on (02) 6499 2222, these events are not included under Public Land Use.
