A decision on whether to go ahead with the Skyworks has been deferred until the end of June.
City of Perth commissioners have called for a comprehensive report on the viability of not just the Skyworks but also the Christmas Nativity and New Year’s Eve events.
It follows suggestions that events involving mass gatherings should be cancelled due to COVID-19.
At an agenda briefing on Tuesday night, it was also requested that the report include possible alternatives, such as the delivery of similar events of a smaller scale.
“These are three events that have been taking place for many, many years and therefore require in my view a greater depth of analysis and consideration than would be afforded other matters within the COVID-19 Economic Rebound Strategy” Chair Commissioner Andrew Hammond said in a statement.
The June Council meeting will be held on Tuesday, June 30.
