Event Application Form

Event application

Submitting the application form is the first step in applying for approval to stage your event in Benalla Rural City. This application form should be used in conjunction with Benalla Rural City’s Event Planning Guide.(PDF, 342KB)

In addition to completing this application, activities associated with your event may require additional permits. Reference to additional permits required can be found in the Event Planning Guide.

What are the stages to gain event approval?

Stage 1

Submit your completed Event Application form together with a Risk Assessment and, in case of a larger event,  Emergency Management Plan . Completion of the form will assist you in identifying what you will be required to do to stage your event.

Stage 2

Event approval will be provided once your event plan and associated documents have been assessed and all necessary permits granted.

Before you proceed, we suggest you check Benalla Rural City Council’s website event calendar (www.benalla.vic.gov.au) to see what other events are scheduled for your proposed event date.
