Planning a family get together, festival, sporting event or other function on the northern Bellarine foreshore between Pt Richards and St Leonards? Then you are required to apply for an event permit. Once you have decided where and when you wish to hold your event you will need to complete the event application form and return this to Bellarine Bayside for approval. Please allow a minimum of eight weeks for your Event Application form to be processed. Large or major events will require a minimum six-month planning period. By definition, an event is any planned activity on Crown land involving more than fifteen (15) participants.
