How much notice you will need to give for an event
For all events on the public highway, you will need to provide us with at least 12 weeks notice before the event's start date. Depending on the event size, you may need to give up to nine months notice. Take a look at our event application schedule below to help you plan.
Application fees to host an event affecting the highway
For street parties, Playing Out Schemes, charity and most community events, there is no fixed fee however staffing costs may apply. For events held for commercial reasons (any event that charges an entrance fee or generates an income), administration, staffing and TTRO advertising fees will apply. For more information on fees, please see our guidance notes.
Applying for event permission
Events on the highway fall under two categories.
- Street party/Playing Out events are small events located in quiet residential streets or cul-de-sacs that are publicised to residents of a local area only.
- Highway events are open to everyone, and are often publicised widely.
We have a different form for each category of event so please complete the appropriate form. If you are unsure which form to use, complete the highway event application form.
Practical guides on how to manage aspects of your event including signage requirements and traffic management can be found below.
For any filming on the public highway which requires traffic management, we will need to be notified at least 12 weeks in advance of filming. Applications to film where no traffic management is required must be submitted 6 weeks in advance of filming. For more information about what is required to apply for permission to film and our standards, please see our Filming Policy and our Filming event guidance notes.
