Maintaining public safety

If you are undertaking construction works within or through the reserve, you must make it clear the area is a construction zone. This involves putting up appropriate fencing, signs, warning lights on all equipment.

You must also ensure you have all relevant insurance and any other permits. You may need to provide these permits if we request it.

Council has the right to revoke and or restrict right of access to an applicant if vehicles, your works and/or event is endangering or creating a hazard that could cause harm or injury to the public or property.

Reclaim your security bond

You can reclaim your security bond after your works or event has finished.

1. Notify Council that works have finished

Please let us know when your works are complete so we can reinspect the park, reserve or sportsground. If you borrowed a key, please return it to us.

2. We will inspect the site

A Council Officer will inspect the park, reserve or sportsground for any damage.

If there is no damage

If the final inspection reveals no damage to Council assets, we will return your security bond via a cheque in the mail within 2-3 weeks.

If there is damage

If the final inspection reveals damage to Council assets, we will:

  • have the permit holder repair the damage, in accordance with Council standards and conditions, within 5 business days
  • repair the damage at the permit holder's expense

If the cost of repair is less than the security bond, Council will refund the remainder to you.

If the cost of repair is more than the security bond, Council will retain your security bond and invoice you for the difference.
