The Event Planning Guide is a comprehensive, user-friendly guide that has been created to assist event organisers with preparing their event plan and being aware of what is required when applying for an event permit.
This document includes a step-by-step guide to planning your event in Melbourne, information on holding events in Melbourne's parks and gardens, roads and laneways, as well as includes a range of useful templates.
In order to hold an event within the City of Melbourne you must have an event permit and an approved event plan. Holding a successful and safe event requires careful planning. Events often affect the day to day running of the city. They usually involve the public and often involve additional elements such as road closures, pedestrian management, health services considerations and promotional activity. Events may also require the assistance of public authorities including Victoria Police, public transport providers and emergency services.
