Events planning and guidance documents

Planning and guidance documentation for holding events in the borough can be found here.

Are you thinking of planning an event? Then we may be able to help. We can provide guidance which will assist you in achieving your objectives and delivering a successful and safe event. 

To begin the planning process, please complete the online Event Notification form via the below link:

This will enable the Events Team to consider your proposal and offer the appropriate advice and assistance relating to your event.

To assist you further, on the page (see below) you will find a range of guidance notes, forms and checklists relating to road closures and traffic management, licensing, risk assessments, employing stewards, health and safety, first aid and more. Please refer to these documents, complete as necessary and consider the guidance carefully when planning your event.

Once the online form has been completed and submitted to the Events Team,  your proposed event will be considered and discussed with appropriate officers within the council.

Dependent upon the size and scope of your proposed event, it may be discussed at the Independent Safety Advisory Group (ISAG), where further requirements and next steps may be identified, ensuring that everything is covered so you can deliver your event safely. 

​If you have any questions, or need anything clarifying, please contact the Events Team​ on 01642 444477 or by emailing
