Street Activation Policy

Consultation has concluded

Our draft Street Activation Policy activates local streets by making it easier for community members to plan and hold street parties, neighbourhood and community events.

We have streamlined the processes required to hold street parties and community events. A ‘How to' Events Kit has been developed, with an easier and more affordable process for undertaking traffic management and road closures.

The new Street Activation Policy enables residents to apply for funding to host local street parties through the City’s Community Funding Program, with funds available to cover costs associated with public liability insurance, traffic management and external application fees.

To address the degree of planning and approvals required for different events, the new policy separates community events into four categories - local streets, neighbourhood streets, major street activations and public gatherings and processions. Each category is based on event size and road closure requirements and is detailed in the full policy here.

We are keen to hear your thoughts about our new draft Street Activation Policy in the hope that the easier and more affordable processes will encourage more of these events among our community.

Have your say by filling out the below survey before 5pm Friday 26 October 2018. Hard copy surveys are also available to fill out at our Administration Centre, 244 Vincent Street.
