Council requires hirers to be covered for public liability insurance, as recommended by Council's insurance broker, for a minimum of $20 million.
In the event that an unincorporated organisation or individual is not insured, insurance cover may be available from Council for a fee.
Council may provide coverage for a one-off event, subject to policy conditions and exclusions, at the cost of $31 including GST.
This is payable with other hire charges prior to the hire date.
In this case, attendance records of participants must be kept by the group receiving coverage.
Evidence in the form of a copy of a current Insurance policy (Certificate of Currency) must be provided when applying for hire.
Groups covered under a policy held by an auspice body/association must provide a copy of the current Certificate and a letter signed by the auspice body declaring coverage.
In the event of any claim or the occurrence of any situation that may give rise to a claim under Council’s insurance, the hirer must advise the Council’s Risk and Insurance Unit on 03 9209 6777 as soon as possible.
The City of Port Phillip has the right to cancel or refuse any booking if such evidence or payment has not been provided.
