We can only refuse your notice if the police or Environmental Health object to it because they think your event could:
lead to crime and disorder
cause a public nuisance
be a threat to public safety
put children at risk of harm
The police and Environmental Health must make their objections within three working days of receiving your application.
If there is an objection, our Licensing Committee will hold a hearing, where they will either approve, add conditions or reject your notice. You can appeal their decision at the magistrates' court within 21 days of them making it, and at least five working days before your event.
If the police of Environmental Health object to a late Temporary Event Notice, you will not be able to hold the event.
If we do refuse your notice, we will serve a formal counter notice. We will not refund your fee.
