Staying safe at your event

Events on Council land are required to have additional measures as directed by NSW Police.

There is an International Standard for vehicle security barriers, focusing on the use of permanent installations. The Standard is comprised of two parts, with Part 1 relating to the structural integrity of devices themselves and their performance rating upon impact and Part 2 relating to how those devices must be installed to be effective. Event organisers can purchase the International Standard or can contact us for access to the document.
