An early application will give Council more time to assist you and will give you more time to fulfil any legal requirements.
For large events and festivals (more than 1000 people) and events involving road closures, applications must be lodged at least 45 working days before the proposed date of the event. Please note that a major event (more than 2000 people) will require a longer lead time than this.
Footscray Police require 3 months notice to attend an event. Police involvement may be compulsory, especially in the case of a street event.
