You will require this permit if you intend to conduct a street collection and collect money from the public in any street, roadway, mall or lane in the Perth metropolitan area. A street collection is a request for monetary contributions or the selling and offering for sale of any button, badge, token, or other similar thing for the purpose of raising money.
Any association, society, or committee may apply for a permit to conduct a street collection. Permits are not available to individuals. Due to the limited number of days allocated for street collections only one appeal is allowed for each applicant per year. Appeals are usually only allowed on Fridays.
The permit does not cover collecting on private property, such as shopping centres. In these cases, approval should be obtained from the owner or shopping centre manager. You may also need to obtain permission from the local council in the area you intend to collect in.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
