Terms and Disclaimer

The Event Toolkit has been designed to help event organisers with the planning of their event. The Event Notification Form outlines key areas that an event organiser should have considered as part of the event planning process and promts organisers to ensure they have all releveant permissions and licences in place. Submitting an Event Notificaiton Form does not constitute that we (Harborough District Council) are giving permission for the event to go ahead.

Our commitment to you, the Event Organiser, is to distibute your Event Notification Form to all key agencies and internal teams (known as Event Safety Group Members) for the Harborough district area, making them aware of your event.

What happens next?

The Event Safety Group Members will analyse the Event Notificaiton Form and contact you (the event organiser) directly if they require further documentation, proof of licences or permissions or if they need to ask any questions regarding the event.

If an event organiser would like advice from a several Event Safety Group Members and feel that it would be beneficial for all key agencies to get together, then the event organiser can call an Event Safety Group Meeting.  Alternatively, an Event Safety Group Member may call an Event Safety Group Meeting if they have concerns regarding the event or feel like some intervention is needed to ensure the event is safe and compliant.
