Stage 2 - Tell us about the event / enquire about using Council land
If you would like to arrange an event on Council land (eg parks, open space, South Shields' amphitheatre), it is essential that you tell us about the event and where you would like it to be held.
If you are arranging an event on private land, telling us about the event means that the Safety Advisory Group (Council, Police, Fire, Ambulance etc) can review your event plans and offer advice and guidance.
Ideally, give three months' notice for smaller events, and six months' notice for larger events. This gives us enough time to provide a comprehensive response.
We will check if the venue is available and suitable for the type of event, and let you know as soon as possible.
We will circulate your plans to the Safety Advisory Group (Council, Police, Fire, Ambulance etc) and provide you with a co-ordinated response. For events on Council land, any guidance offered by the Safety Advisory Group must be implemented.
