Temporary event notices: What is permitted in a calendar year?

From the beginning of January 2016, it is now possible to obtain an additional three temporary event notices in a calendar year. Previously, twelve temporary event notices were permitted and now the number has increased to fifteen.

You still need to bear in mind that the number of people allowed to attend an event authorised by way of a temporary event remains at 499, including staff. Also, an event cannot last for more than 168 hours, which is seven days and the number of days in a calendar year on which events can take place remains at twenty-one.

As ever, you always need to bear in mind that if you are applying for a standard temporary event notice, you should provide at least ten working days’ notice to the Council, the Police and Environmental Health.

It remains possible to apply for a late temporary event notice, although notice of this must be given at least five working days before the event and should the Local Authority, Police or Environmental Health object to a late TEN, the event cannot go ahead.

Essentially the situation now is that fifteen events are now permitted rather than twelve however, all the other restrictions and requirements remain unchanged.
