Section 2: Next steps

Once we have received your event application, we will:

  • Check it for date availability, event suitability and licence requirements.
  • E-mail you to advise on any next steps. This may include a link to the full event application form and a checklist of additional information required.
  • Share links to other agencies you may need to contact, such as Surrey County Council Highways.
  • Confirm fees and charges (if this on Tandridge owned or managed land).
  • Let you know about any additional requirements and what you should do before we can confirm your event.

If you are required to complete a full event application, we will ask you to consider the following:



Some events will require a licence. You will need to allow 10 weeks for a premises licence and 4 weeks for a temporary event notice (TEN).

Street trading licence

If your event is free to attend and you will be trading (selling any item including food, drink or any other item) or collecting, you will need to apply for a Street Trading Licence.


Hirers of public open space are required to hold a current policy of insurance in respect of public liability or third party risks (including products liability where appropriate). The relevant limit of indemnity must be no less than £5 million and the Council reserves the right to require a higher limit if deemed necessary.


Risk assessment

You may need to provide a site-specific risk assessment. The risk assessment should consider site specific issues/hazards. For example, these can include manual handling, vehicle movements, working at height, electrical and fire safety, slips and falls and money handling. More information can be found at, HSE guidance and information, bouncy castles and inflatables and temporary demountable structures.


Site, traffic and parking management plans

You will need to provide a detailed site plan showing the position of your event and activities. You may also be asked to provide a parking and/or traffic management plan.


Event management plan (EMP)

Larger events will require a detailed EMP. More information can be found at Events Industry Forum and the HSE website.


Fees and charges (including cancellation)

We will be able to calculate your event charge once we have received your event application form. Cancellations must be in writing (e-mail or letter) or the full hire charge will be payable.


Emergency services

You must notify the police and other appropriate emergency services of your proposed event particularly if more than 1,000 people are expected to attend, or if your event activities are of an unusual nature for example, balloon launches.


Keeping your Information updated

If any of your application details change once your application has been submitted, please inform us. No additional items/activities may be included without our consent.
