We encourage residents to host a Neighbourhood Street Gatherings, Play Streets and Spooky Streets.
We want to make it easy for residents to come together safely so will cover the costs and will support you along the way.
We offer three different street gatherings.
Sessions run for approximately two hours and for Play streets, you can borrow our sporting equipment such as bats, balls, hula hoops and skipping ropes. Council works with hosts in planning their sessions and takes care of the necessary permits and insurances, arranges traffic management plans and helps ensure the sessions meet COVID-safe practices.
The information on this page will provide you with details on what’s involved in hosting your own street gathering and how to get started.
There are no fees charged by council to host a street gathering. It just takes your time to plan & coordinate and manage the street closure on the day.
