How to check election campaign activity compliance

With the federal election approaching, campaigning activity has hit our streets.

We can work together to make sure election campaigning – including placement of banners, posters and stickers – doesn’t impact amenity and safety in Boroondara.

On our Promotional activities for elections page, you can check:

  • when an activity requires a permit
  • when an activity is not permitted
  • how to apply for a permit (for candidates and their teams).

Generally, Council can act on campaigning activity that affects the community when it occurs on Council-controlled land or assets – such as our parks, footpaths, bins, and public utilities like power poles. If you see campaign activity that could be non-compliant with Council’s laws as set out on our website, you can report it to us to assess.

Officers will inspect if something is assessed as potentially non-compliant.
