New fees for weddings in council parks

Brisbane City Council will forge ahead with controversial local law changes that will give council officers the power to fine large groups of people up to $5500 for gathering in parks without permits.

The proposal prompted a public backlash when it was unveiled in September, largely in response to the plan to charge groups of more than 50 in excess of $300 in advance for a permit to use public parks and open spaces citywide.
After a five week public consultation period, the period of time to apply for the permit was reduced from 20 days to 5 days.

If, as expected, the law is given council go ahead on Tuesday (4 November 2014), it will then go to the State Government for the final tick of approval. It is expected to be operational before the end of the year (2014).  Click here for more to read more from Brisbane Times website.

While the local law won't mean any changes for the great majority of residents, council has created a clear and concise set of guidelines to help eliminate any confusion.

Only a limited number of activities such as WEDDINGS, markets and fetes will require a permit from council.  Read more from Quest Community Newspapers.
