Event Guide and Permit


Do you want to hold and event in Banyule?

Are you holding a teddy bears picnic?  Organising a fun run?  Singing Christmas Carols in the park?  Putting on a festival?

The Banyule Event Fact Sheets will answer all your questions about what to do, how to do it and what you need.

The best way to begin your event planning is to check out our first fact sheet - 1. Running an Event in Banyule.  You can open the fact sheets by clicking on the list in the top right corner of this page.

It's then easy to work your way through the fact sheets, taking note of information that is relevant to your event as you go.  Even if you are holding an event on private land the information in these fact sheets will be a great guide to all the things you may need to consider.

If you are holding an event on Council land and need to apply for an event permit (see fact sheet 2. Do I need an event permit) please click on fact sheet 13. Event Permit Application Form, just print the form, fill it in and post it to Council or drop it off at one of our service centres.  Not sure where to drop it off? You can find our contact details here. You can also email to

Many events that do not require a Banyule Event Permit may still need a Temporary Food Premises Permit or an Occupancy Permit from the Victorian Building Commission. Details about these permits can also be found in the fact sheets.

To help you with your event planning Banyule Council has developed an Event Management Team, made up of Council staff from across the organization, this group is here to help.  The Event Management Team can assist festival and event organisers determine which permits are required, what infrastructure you need and to assist with your application.
