Event Notification

Before You Start 

Use this form to tell us about your event.  Ideally at least 12 weeks before the event.

Information Sharing

Your details will be reviewed by the Events Safety Advisory Group (Dover District Council, Kent Fire and Rescue, Kent Highways and Kent Police). Your information will not be passed on to any other party without your prior consent.

Temporary Event Notice

Events that include the following activities will also require a Temporary Event Notice

  • Sale and supply of alcohol
  • Provision of late night refreshments to the public
  • Regulated entertainment 

Safety Advisory Groups will not undertake any role associated with the organisation or management of an event and completion and return of this form does not remove the need to obtain the relevant consents and licences, the responsibility for which ultimately rests with the event organiser. By notifying the authority of an event this in no way absolves the organiser from any health and safety responsibility nor does it infer that Dover District Council has any responsibility for health and safety in relation to the event.  Event organisers are strongly recommended to visit the HSE website which gives advice on running events safely.
