​​Event ​​​Banner Frames

Council is committed to the promotion of local events and celebrations that contribute to our vibrant and flourishing community. To assist event organisers in promoting local events Council provides fixed event banner frames in key locations near the entrance of each town for the display of temporary event banners. As the event banner frames are located on public land, banners displayed should:

  • ​Promote local festivals, key sporting and recreational events and matters or short community interest

  • Not contain private or commercial advertising

  • Not contain material that may be offensive; and

  • Display roster to allow equity

More information on the safety and compliance requirements for banners and how to apply can be found in the Council's policy Temporary event banners on fixed banner frames​.
