Having the commercial fitness trainers' application and permit system in place helps Council to:

  1. Cater for multiple users and uses of open space
  2. Ensure the sustainable use of parks and open spaces
  3. Ensure that all organised users of parks and open spaces hold appropriate qualifications, certificates and insurances

What type of permit do I apply for?

Depending on the number of people you intend to train at any one time, you will need to decide what type of permit to apply for: 1 to 9 participants, or 10 to 18 participants.

There is a maximum of 2 permits per venue and 3 venues per organisation/trainer.
