Organising outdoor events in Tameside


If you're planning an outdoor event in Tameside, you are required to complete a notification of event form at least 8 weeks prior to the event so that we can ensure that the relevant permissions are obtained.

Event Notification Form 
Event Terms of use 

You will also need to include;
  • Public Liability Insurance (for events on Council land)
  • Risk Assessments

Once completed, the form can be emailed to licensing@tameside.gov.uk or posted to;
Licensing Office
Tame Street Depot
Tame Street
Stalybridge
SK15 1ST


There is an administration fee of £30 to process your application. Once you have submitted your application, the Licensing Section will contact you to arrange payment.
 
Once you have submitted your notification and paid the fee, your notification and associated documents will be circulated to the relevant consultees. If any of the consultees have issues with your notification, they will contact you directly to discuss their concerns. If you do not hear anything within the next 28 days, you can assume that all consultees are happy with your notification and your event can go ahead as planned.

Please be aware that the event notification process does not provide permission to make any material changes to Council land.
