When organising an event, it is necessary to complete relevant risk assessments. We, as a local authority do not supply event organisers with template risk assessments, but will provide links to Health and Safety Executive documents to assist you with the risk assessing process. Please see the Links page.
In the current climate, we are strongly advising organisers to consider vehicle mitigation and other counter terrorism measures such as extra security and stewarding at events where crowds will be gathered. It is not meant to alarm, but you are advised to put Risk Assessments in place. Please see the ‘Protect UK – Publicly Accessible Locations Guidance’ provided in the Links section.
