Event management

Organising events and notifying the relevant authorities

Event organisers are responsible for and should ensure that all necessary permissions and licences are in place before an event goes ahead.  Event Safety Group members, including Leicestershire County Council, Leicestershire Police, Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Services, East Midlands Ambulance Services and Melton Borough Council should also have been notified as part of your event planning process. 

You must ensure you have the permission of the landowner before organising your event. 

For events that affect the highway, including pavements and road closures, there is advice on what you need to do on the Leicestershire County Council website.

Event notification form

You are now able to complete and submit the form to us online by clicking on the "Complete the event notification form" button below.  If you wish to complete a paper version instead, you should request this from and send it back to our Environmental Health team: environmentalhealth@melton.gov.uk

Once received, we will distribute the form to all Event Safety Group Members, who may contact you for further information. You'll therefore need to send in the completed form in good time prior to the event, so that the relevant authorities have enough opportunity to look at the proposals. 

Please Note: The responsibility of running a safe and compliant event remains with the event organiser. It is their responsibility to ensure all licences, insurance and management procedures are in place.

Martyn’s Law

The Terrorism (Protection of Premises) Bill sets out the requirements that, under ‘Martyn’s Law’, venues and other organisations will have to meet to ensure public safety.  Further details are available via the link below.
