Events on roads
If you’re planning an event that uses all or some of a road, will be taking away parking spaces or altering the flow of traffic and/or pedestrians from the norm, you'll need to complete an Event Application Form and submit a professional traffic management plan.
You can find the Event Application Form here.
Also, if you’re having to close a road, Waipā District Council requires at least 90 days notice before your event date, to complete the advertisement and road closure process required under the Local Government Act.
So, if you’re using a road, parking or changing the normal flow of road users then here's how it goes:
If your event needs a temporary road closure a public notification process is required on top of the above info, giving the public time to give feedback and for a report to go to Council’s Service Delivery Committee for their sign off.
This is done by you notifying council about the roads your event will close and the dates and times of the closure. Council then places a public notice in the local newspapers on your behalf at the cost of the event organiser. Please allow for at least 90 days for this step in the process.
If you'd like to discuss your event and its use of the road corridor you can contact council's events and marketing advisors at email@example.com or by phoning 0800 324 723.
