Organise an Event

Thanet District Council is committed to enabling events that contribute to our vibrant culture, coastal environment and economy by working with event organisers, partners and agencies to provide a variety of safe and enjoyable events.

If you are planning to organise an event on public land you will need to notify us so this can be reviewed by our Safety Advisory Group. Which is made up of TDC departments and local agencies, such as:

  • Kent Police
  • South East Coast Ambulance
  • Kent County Council
  • Kent Fire and Rescue Service
  • NHS
  • RNLI

Depending on the size of your event you will need to notify us:

Size of Event No. of Attendees Application Deadline
Small 0-499 14 weeks before the event
Medium 500-999 14 weeks to 6 months before the event
Large 1000+ 8 months before the event
Major 5000+ 12 months before the event

We recommend that you contact your Parish or Town Council to notify them about your event.

We have implemented an online system where you will be able to send us your documentation. Communicate directly with the Safety Advisory Group and manage all your documents and information for all your events in one place.

For more information please visit our Event App Webpage. Where you will find:

  • Template documents
  • Guidance
  • Information on road closures for events

If you have any further questions, please call the technical support team on 01843 577735 – between 10am – 4pm Monday – Friday if your call is not answered a message can be left on the answerphone or email events@thanet.gov.uk.
