Council encourages various events in the Newcastle area to promote social cohesion and to build an inclusive community. There are two types of events that may be granted approval to temporarily close roads. These are:
- Community events for fundraising purposes and for non-profit organisations
- Local minor street events (such as a neighbourhood Christmas party).
For groups or other organisations wishing to organise an event or minor local street event requiring a temporary road closure, please refer to events planning.
For further information regarding events or street parties, please contact Council's Event Liaison Officer on 4974 2845.
