Applying to film in Greater Dandenong

If you are planning to film or photograph on public land in Greater Dandenong and you are a student, community member or not-for-profit production please email Melissa.White@cgd.vic.gov.au with the following details. Please allow a week for a response.

  • Your name
  • Contact phone number
  • Proposed date and time of filming
  • Number of cast or crew

For commercial filming we often require more information such as a site plan and risk management plan if relevant. If you do not need to divert or stop pedestrians or traffic then a permit will generally not be required. If your filming will require traffic to be diverted or a road to be closed, please also complete a road closure permit application form and attach with your email.
