If you are giving a Temporary Event Notice, new legislation may prevent the event from going ahead. This could happen at very short notice.
Your event might not be able go ahead because of local or national restrictions needed to control the spread of coronavirus. This is despite any agreement with a responsible authority. This is also regardless of whether you have completed a coronavirus risk assessment.
The Temporary Event Notice fee you have paid is non-refundable.
Due to the current restrictions around events and large gatherings, the responsible authority for Environmental Health may request evidence that your event will take place in a ‘Covid Secure’ environment.
If the Environmental Health authority don't receive the evidence or if they have cause for concern, they may object to the event taking place. This is likely to be on the grounds of undermining public safety or public nuisance.
We would suggest you complete a coronavirus risk assessment for your event. This will help your event progress without delay or a possible hearing.
You can contact us for advice on completing a risk assessment by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
We will also ask you how you will support the NHS track and track process.
If the Environmental Health authority have not have made an objection notice, your event still may not go ahead because of national or local restrictions needed to control incidents or the spread of coronavirus. This action may be taken by Essex County Council or the Secretary of State.
