Applying for a Licence Agreement
Under the Crown Land Acts Amendment (Lease and Licence Terms) Act 2009, personal trainers and fitness groups operating on public land within the City of Port Phillip are required to have a licence agreement with Council.
Activities which require a licence include organised commercial fitness pursuits, such as personal training, boot camps and any other group fitness classes or training group sessions.
We welcome applications via the booking portal from personal trainers and fitness groups which will provide significant social and cultural outcomes for the community, whilst respecting the City’s natural assets.
