Outdoor Activation Resources

As part of the Victorian State Government COVIDSafe Outdoor Activation Fund 2021, Knox City Council has received funding to help transform more outdoor areas in and around Retail Activity Centres to encourage residents to get out and support their local businesses safely.

Knox City Council has reviewed how it can best support businesses through this funding and have identified seven activity centres where there is the opportunity to improve amenities and make it more conducive for consumers to visit. A range of initiatives are planned, including street furniture, outdoor dining pods, planters and lighting.

Program specifics

Retail businesses can apply to receive items from Knox Council to incentivise customers to visit local business. 

As a part of our Outdoor Activation Projects, Knox Council is giving out (via order form) resources to attract customers. 

Resources available to businesses include:-

  • fairy lights (box of 500)
  • hand sanitiser stands, and
  • graffiti removal kits. 

Fairy lights can be used outdoors to enhance a facade, installed on a front awning or main window of your business to make the areas more inviting to customers.  

Knox City Council is proudly supporting local manufacturers by having the stands made locally. Help keep the community, staff and consumers safe by providing a hand sanitiser stand at your store entrance.

Graffiti kits will assist any business in keeping their facade free of tagging or graffiti to keep their shopfront clean and inviting.  


Note: Use of all products is the responsibility of the business and all liability rests with the user. Only whilst stocks last.

Requirements: Once you receive your fairy lights and/or hand sanitiser stand, it is a requirement that you take an image and send it to us via the email us button below. Please include your business details.
