Know Your Neighbour
The City understands that the first step to creating friendlier and safer neighbourhoods is getting to know the people in your local area.
To assist with this we are currently working hard to develop a great program to help you build connections and organise gatherings in your neighbourhood. In the meantime, check out some of the useful resources below, and feel free to get in touch with the Community Development team by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone: 9405 5600 if you have any questions about hosting a gathering or want some more ideas on how to create a stronger, friendlier neighbourhood.
Please note you may need to check with the Facilities Booking Team if you are intending to host your gathering at a local park, as larger gatherings may require an event application.
