Application forms for pyrotechnician licences and (single-use) fireworks licences are available from SafeWork NSW as they are responsible for authorising and regulating fireworks.
Please notify Council at least seven days before the intended date of your fireworks.
Council will consider the impacts of the fireworks, then issue a support/objection letter to SafeWork NSW and the Pyrotechnician.
Fireworks cannot proceed if Council raises an objection to the display which has not been resolved.
Complaints should be directed to SafeWork NSW as they have the legislative powers to act.

Protect your pets
With firework displays expected on Australia Day and New Year's Eve, it's important to prepare if you have pets.
Where possible, keep your animals indoors in a safe, secure and comfortable environment; close all blinds or curtains; and ensure they are wearing their ID tags. Horses should be secured to posts.
If your pet has a severe phobia of fireworks and storms, it's wise to consider staying at home.
