Event Permit Application - Does your event need a permit?

Events held on public land require the completion of the Initial Event Permit Advice Form. If you require assistance when filling out the form please contact council's Events Unit. All forms should be submitted at least three months before your event.

At a minimum, all event permit applications will need:

  • Copy of current public liability insurance
  • Risk Management Plan which identifies your event's risk and outlines how you plan to manage potential risk (see available template below)
  • Site Plan showing the layout of your event
  • either your COVIDSafe Events Checklist or COVIDSafe Events Plan (see Public Events Framework)

Depending on event activities, other considerations include:

  • Traffic Management Plan and permit from VicRoads for road closures
  • permission or permit from other land managers such as Gippsland Ports, DELWP or Parks Victoria
  • permission or permit from emergency services such as Police or CFA

For all your information on the above and more, with helpful tips on running an event, please view our Event Planning Guide A to Z.

Council Grants Program - Get funding from Council for your Event

The Council Grants Program has three streams for funding, Community Grants, Arts and Heritage Alliance, and Regional and District Events Sponsorship.
