About Vibrant City

The Vibrant City program is geared toward creating a city where more people want to live, work and spend time because there is always something to do.

The program is achieving this by improving and maximising opportunities for:

Small venues

We provide a pre-lodgement service for venues proposing operation under a Small Venue Licence within the Adelaide central business district.

The service provides case management, helping to streamline the process with more efficient decision-making and reduced assessment time.
