Public addresses and assemblies
Getting together in the City
If you wish to hold a public assembly in the City of Sydney we have protocols and measures in place to ensure the safety of the public.
Certain activities cannot be undertaken on community land without approval. These activities include:
- set up, operation or use of a loudspeaker or sound amplifying device
- a public address
- holding of a religious service
- public meeting
Our Venue Management team are the best point of contact to advise you on required approvals.
Your activities must not obstruct or cause undue disturbance to any member of the public. It is also not acceptable to engage in vilification of any community members, including, but not limited to, racial, sexual, gender or disability discrimination.
If your public address or assembly is likely to attract a crowd, we recommend you lodge a “Notification of Intention to hold a public assembly” (“Form 1”) under the Summary Offences Regulation 2005 with the Commissioner of Police.
