Having a Park or Beach Wedding on The Gold Coast????
Council Permits for Gold Coast Weddings..If you are planning on holding your wedding ceremony in a public area on the Gold Coast, either in a park, garden or beach, you must have an approved council permit to do so. As soon as you have chosen your desired location, its a good idea to fill out a council application form as soon as possible. Popular parks and beach spots on the Gold Coast can be booked out well in advance, so first in best dressed! Filling out a council application is very easy, and the council normally can give you a response to your application within 10 working days. Some councils may have a small fee that you need to pay with your application form. You will need to check with your local council.
