Organise an event
Anyone can organise an event, however if you wish to hold an event on council land you will need to ask us permission.
You can hold an event at any time of year however before planning your event, check your date and location is available.
If you’re thinking about having a street party and need to close your road, read through the street party guidance before you start planning. If road closure will be necessary complete a street party request form. If no road closure is required, complete the organising an event form.
There are fees associated with holding events on our land and these can vary depending upon the type, size, location and purpose of the event. Once we have more details we can advise on any charges which may be payable.
Charities, local organisations and non-commercial/community groups can benefit from a reduction in fees. You can apply for a discount as part of the application process.
All events will require a risk assessment and proof of public liability insurance. Larger or more complex events will require an onsite meeting at the location to discuss your plans, a full event management plan to be submitted and consultation with our Safety Advisory Group.
