Events on council land and open spaces

Anyone looking to organise an event or carry out commercial activities on council-owned land will need to seek permission in advance.

Organisers are required to complete an application form and provide supporting documentation, including insurance details, any necessary licences/certificates and risk assessments.

For first time and larger scale events it is advised that organisers attend a Dacorum Safety Advisory Group meeting to help ensure all the correct measures are in place and to support your application. We therefore ask for a minimum of two months' notice to ensure there is time for your application to be processed.

Warning signCoronavirus (COVID-19): We continue to provide services online and via telephone. However, we recognise that, in some cases, you will need an appointment with an officer so we offer limited pre-booked appointments at the Forum for urgent enquiries. You may experience longer waiting times or an online response due to increased demand on our services. Please call 01442 228000 and ask for the service you require. For council service updates and other advice, please see our COVID-19 page×
