Event Application Forms
When is a Frankston City Council Event Permit required?
An Event Permit issued from Frankston City Council is permitted when you are hosting or running an event in a public space on Council owned/managed land within the municipality. This includes, but not limited to parks, reserves, foreshores, car parks, streets, nature strips etc.
Event Fees and Charges
Fee and charges are listed on the application forms.
Outdoor Dining Smoking Bans
The state government’s introduction of smoking bans on Tuesday 1 August 2017 for all outdoor dining areas will affect event and market organisers, whose events offer outdoor dining or food preparation.
The easiest way for event organisers to comply with the new smoking laws is to ban smoking, or establish a 10-metre buffer zone between all designated smoking and food service areas.
A failure to comply with the new laws may put event and market organisers at risk of a fine.
More information can be found at health.vic.gov.au.
Otherwise, ask to speak to one of Council’s Environmental Health Officers, who can offer further advice and assistance about how to comply with the new legislation.
