Application instructions

Read the T&Cs

Read the full Terms & Conditions below and check that you are eligible to apply.  

Contact the Town

Contact the Town to register your interest for the Street Meet ‘n’ Greet. A Town Officer will check your eligibility and discuss your plans for the event. The event should not take place prior to approval by the Town. 


Once the Town confirms your eligibility, you may send your completed application form to the Town for final approval, along with a specified event preference (i.e., street get-together or street celebration) and a map of the invited households. If the Town requires more information, the Officer will contact the applicant. The Officer will advise successful applicants of the outcome by phone or email and will confirm eligibility for the program. 

Street celebration additional requirements

Hosts that decide to host a street celebration will need approval from the Officer, who will organise the road closure. If 1/3rd of the affected households object to the road closure, the Town will not close the road. Once approved, the date for the event will be booked.  

The applicant must notify all households that will be within the road closure of the event as soon as possible via a letterbox drop, including the time, date, road closure location, and a contact email if they wish to object to the road closure. 

The applicant must notify all households again via a letterbox drop the week of the event, with the time, date, road closure location, and a contact email if they wish to object to the road closure. 

Hold the event

Once the event has been organised and approved by the Officer, you are welcome to hold your event. Please ensure that all current COVID-19 regulations are being followed. The Town also encourages hosts to undertake the following:

  • Recording name and contact information to register attendees
  • Provide hand washing and hand sanitiser for attendee
  • Outdoor events are preferred
  • Reduce sharing of plates, cutlery, drinks, food, and other equipment
  • People who feel unwell should not attend the event 

The applicant is responsible for engaging, procuring and fully paying for goods and services for the event. The Town is not liable, nor will it provide any payment to those engaged by the applicant. 

Submit remaining documents

Following the completion of the event, the applicant must submit the remaining outstanding documents so the rebate can be arranged: 

  • A copy of all receipts and proof of full payment

The Officer will advise the outcome of the application in writing. In the event the Town requires more information, the Officer will contact the applicant. 

Receive your rebate

Your rebate will be transferred electronically to the account nominated on the application form. Please inform the Town by email when you have received your rebate.
