Port Phillip Council aims to plan, attract and direct events to ensure our City is welcoming, healthy, safe and vibrant for all. It is commonly recognised and accepted that events bring a wealth of benefits to a community, from health and wellbeing of residents through to economic development for local businesses, cultural vibrancy and social engagement.
Any event attracting over 200 people or with significant infrastructure will require a permit. Events including:
- markets and laneways permit
- outdoor corporate events
- promotion and sampling sites
- street stalls, raffles and collections.
If you are planning a major event that will attract large numbers or may require significant road closures, you will also need to submit an expression of interest for major events and markets.
The City of Port Phillip is committed to fostering equitable participation for all. Please take a look at our Accessibility and Disability Inclusion fact sheet to see how you can ensure your event is inclusive and accessible:
