To take full advantage of the protection afforded by the Act:

  • The application itself requires extensive government consultation and can take up to six months to complete.
  • Ideally the application should be approved and in place a minimum of one year out from the event, therefore it is recommended that planning begins 18 months out from an event.
  • The earlier an event is declared to be a major event under the Act, the more time there is to publicise the fact and the more effective the protection available will be.
