Occupancy Permit for a Place of Public Entertainment

An Occupancy Permit for a Place of Public Entertainment is required when any building or place is used for an event which normally would not be used for that purpose where a fee to enter is required. A fee includes donations and gifts.

Types of events can be fetes, festivals, sporting events, music events, carnivals or the like.

An Occupancy Permit for a Public Entertainment must be displayed at the event office or at a place where it can be readily viewed when required.
