Hosting an event in Wyre

Coronavirus update 15.07.20  -  events hosted on council land 

The current national guidelines still remain at a maximum of 30 people per mass gathering. Without any specific information for outdoor events to involve higher numbers; the council is discouraging applications for Use of Land Licenses and Temporary Road Closures at the present time.

When, in the future, event restrictions are lifted by the government, event organisers will be responsible for submitting event plans and a thorough risk assessment, in order to implement safe and secure events, strictly adhering to Covid-19 guidelines at the time. The council has a duty of care to staff, volunteers, residents and visitors. Events proposed to take place on council owned land must have robust controls for social distancing, facilities for washing and welfare and PPE for event staff.

Applications will be then scrutinized on merit, by both council officers and members of the Wyre Safety Advisory Group (WYSAG). If all of the above is not covered as an integral part of the event safety plan; licenses and orders will not be issued.
