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
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
- Information on road closures for events
