Running your own event in Brimbank? We've got all the information you need to run an event, as well as information on how to complete the Event Permit application forms. 

Council welcomes events that are well planned, safely conducted and that don't adversely impact on the community.

Brimbank Events Handbook

Our Brimbank Events Handbook has codes of practice and legislation for running your event including our permit application process, permit requirements and essential information for organisers.

Filming in Brimbank

As part of our Bushfire Relief support, Brimbank Council will absorb any event permit fees for community groups and community members who wish to hold fundraising events supporting registered and not-for-profit organisations that provide bushfire relief funding or activities.

Filming is a planned activity so you’ll need an Event Permit. You must also follow the Code of Conduct for Film Crews and other permit requirements which apply under our Local Laws

Filming that may have an impact on a Council owned site as in the Brimbank Events Handbook needs:

  • An event permit
  • Event permit essentials (page 10 of the Handbook)
  • A brief synopsis of the film shoot
  • A parking plan for the Unit Base and Essential Vehicles.

Filming in facilities and on sportsgrounds may also require a booking fee and/or bond from Leisure Services.

Victoria Police Film and Television Office Approvals

If you’re going to film:

  • From low loaders;
  • Portrayals of police; or
  • Simulated violence

you must get approval from the Victoria Police Film and Television Office first before applying for a permit.
