Council encourages the community to apply to use parks and reserves for social events and gatherings. Depending on the size of the event, different application processes need to be followed.
COVIDSafe events in 2021
All events in the City of Greater Dandenong must have a COVIDSafe Plan or COVIDSafe checklist approved by the Victorian Government. This is in addition to all the necessary event approvals from other authorities, including Council.
Events with 1-200 attendees
If the event is expected to attract less than 200 people, apply for the casual use of the park, reserve or sports ground. Please note that depending on the type and size of event there may be a fee for parks/reserves hire.
Events with more than 200 attendees
Events attracting over 200 attendees on Council land in the City of Greater Dandenong require an event permit.
To commence an application for an event permit, complete the intention to hold an event form and return to Council within the relevant application deadline. Once this is received, Council will advise the next steps of the application and whether any other relevant event application forms are required.
