Event Permits Workshops and Information Sessions

There are common challenges for event permit applicants around food, site and risk planning specific to an event.

In response, we're offering 30-45 minute 1-on-1 lunchtime workshop and information sessions on Tuesdays and Wednesdays only between 12noon–1pm. These will be at Brimbank Community and Civic Centre, 301 Hampshire Road, Sunshine.

  • Sessions will be ongoing by appointment only between February-May and July-November .
  • Sessions are at no charge.
  • Use our registration form on this page to book your session.

Do I need a permit?

If your event involves:

  • fireworks;
  • more than 60 people; or
  • marquees and other structures on public land; or
  • affects local parking and traffic conditions,

you will need an event permit. Our 1-on1 sessions can help you with what you'll need to know.

Our Brimbank Events Handbook outlines the permit process and condenses a vast amount of regulatory information into easy to understand guidelines and user-friendly templates.
