Overview of Application Process

Are you considering holding an event within the City of Perth?
Whether your concept is a private event or one that is accessible to the public, if the event will take place within the City of Perth’s boundary, you will be required to obtain an event permit.  The event permit will outline site specific information, regulations and any other approvals required.

The City’s Health and Activity Approvals Unit is the approving body for events held on City land and private properties, assessing each event to ensure the health and safety of patrons and the amenity of surrounding residents.  Please refer to the links below for more information on available spaces.  

Applying for an event permit:
An event application should be submitted at least one month prior to your event, however, should the event be considered large or high risk, an application will be required a minimum of 6 months in advance.
