Fireworks

​Noise associated with Fireworks Display

SafeWork NSW manages and regulates the planning and authorisation of fireworks displays in NSW. Council do not approve or authorise fireworks display but can lodge objections to a display if warranted. Council are notified of a scheduled display seven days prior to the event. Council then advises SafeWork NSW if Council supports or objects to the planned display. Ultimately, however, SafeWork NSW approves or rejects fireworks applications.

SafeWork NSW are also responsible for investigating issues relating to the display, including noise. In the first instance, fireworks noise complaints should be directed to SafeWork NSW.

Undertaking a Fireworks display

If you hold a licence from SafeWork NSW and you wish to undertake a fireworks display within the Coffs Harbour Local Government Area you must notify Council via the following fireworks display checklist. Once completed in full, the form is to be returned to Council for assessment at least seven days prior to the display. Council will notify the pyro technician and SafeWork NSW of any concerns, objections or proposed conditions to the display.
