Online Form - Event Notification


To be completed for ALL Public Events within the Shire unless the event is held on private property and is compliant with the current Public Building Certificate of Approval. Bookings and permits are not confirmed until approval has been granted by the Shire of Wyndham East Kimberley.

Whilst the Shire encourages the staging of events within the Shire of Wyndham East Kimberley and recognise the benefits they can bring to the community, the Shire has a responsibility to ensure they are managed in an appropriate manner. Therefore, all public events MUST have a Public Building Certificate of Approval, a Shire of Wyndham East Kimberley Event Permit, and ensure they comply with the Government of Western Australia Department of Health Guidelines and legislation, before they can proceed.

A Public Building Certificate of Approval specifies what the venue can be used for and the maximum occupancy. An event, public or private, held at a venue with a current Public Building Approval must comply with the terms of this Certificate. Details can be obtained from the landowner. Shire facilities with Public Building Approvals can be found here.

An event which has an existing Approval to Construct, Extend or Alter a Public Building from a previous event and will comply with this approval, must confirm this in writing when submitting this form.

A private event held on a property that does not require a public building approval, must ensure that they have landowner’s permission, and the event complies with all relevant legislation. These events may require permits from other authorities and the Shire will refer organisers to the appropriate authority where possible.

Event Notification Forms must be completed and submitted with ALL supporting information to the Shire of Wyndham East Kimberley 8 weeks prior to the commencement of the event. Any forms received less than 4 weeks prior to the event may be refused.

The Shire will provide a written decision within 4 weeks of receiving all required documentation, which will include confirmation of related fees.

Any questions or queries, do not hesitate to contact the Community Development Officer on 9168 4100 or mail@swek.wa.gov.au who will assist you with your application or direct you to the relevant staff member.
