If you're planning a public entertainment event, you may be required to obtain an Occupancy Permit for a Place of Public Entertainment (POPE).
This is to ensure the event complies with all safety requirements, such as exits, fire safety, public amenities and if necessary that stages or other temporary structures suitably located and sound in construction.
If the area used for public entertainment is greater than 500m2, it is considered a place of public entertainment. Exemptions are in place for community organisations. Please contact our building team to find out if this applies to you.
