You must let us know at least 10 working days before the event and have to pay a fee of £21.
We'll let you know we've got your application by giving you a notice before the end of the first working day it was received or before the end of the second working day if the notice was received on a weekend or bank holiday.
Unless an application has been submitted online, you also have to give notice to the chief officer of the local police department no later than 10 working days before the event period.
If the police think your event might cause issues they can serve an objection notice on you and the council. We have to hold a hearing if an objection notice is served. A decision must be made at least 24 hours before the beginning of the event.
A police chief may modify the temporary event notice with your consent. If this happens, it means their objection to your event notice has been withdrawn.
