Security bonds

Depending on the type of activity or event and/or equipment you want to bring into a park, you may need to pay a security bond beforehand. 

If your security bond is not paid, the park use consent for your activity or event will be cancelled. 

If your activity or event causes damage to the park and/or the park is not properly cleaned and tidied after your activity or event, Council may keep part or all of your security bond to restore the park to its original condition.

Other charges

Other charges may apply for services provided by Council for activities or events, such as electricity, cleaning and any additional function set-up costs.
