You need council permission to run a commercial activity or sell items from a sportsground.

To get permission, get in touch with us to discuss your booking request. We may give you a booking confirmation letter of approval for a short-term event, or you may have to apply for a formal license.

You also need council permission to sell items like food and drink from a sportsground.  Depending on what you're planning to sell, you may need to apply for a concession licence.

A number of concession licences exist for sports parks, the Petone and Eastbourne foreshore and Avalon Park. Get in touch to tell us about your event and we can let you know what you need to do.
