Street raffles

Are you planning a fund raiser for your community organisation? If your fundraising activities include street stalls or raffles, you will need Council approval first. 

Simply complete the Street trading application form(PDF, 757KB) and return it to Council at least seven days before the proposed event. You must do this for Council to consider granting a permit. Council will contact you once the application has been considered. 

Conditions of your approved permit 

If your application is approved, there will be conditions as part of your permit which include:

  • Displayed items must not obstruct pedestrian traffic.
  • Permit holders must show the permit if asked by an authorised Council officer or a police officer. Your fundraising sales may be cancelled if you fail to produce the permit.
  • It is the permit holder’s responsibility to ensure all raffles comply with the Victorian Commission for Gambling requirements. Visit the Victorian Commission for Gambling website for more information.
