​​​​a) Events such as concerts, parades, festivals, galas, meetings or exhibitions occur on a regular basis throughout the City. ​
b)​ Temporary​​ activities include construction activities and temporary helicopter landing pads. Construction can involve temporary structures such as site offices and cranes near roads, and generate various adverse effects including unusually heavy traffic movements.​
c)​ The temporary nature of the activities generally makes any adverse effects more acceptable to the community. Consequently, many events and temporary activities of short duration are tolerated by those affected while others enjoy what the event has to offer.​
d)​ Events and temporary activities make a contribution to the economic, social and cultural wellbeing and help create a vibrant Hamilton.
