Event planning - Plan an event

Planning a Public Event?  Have you contacted the Safety Advisory Group?  Use the following pages to help you organise a safe event.

Towns and villages throughout Bassetlaw regularly hold outdoor events.  These can include Galas, Fayres, Carnivals, Marathons, Walks etc.  Whether the event is large or small, held for a Charity or has a commercial purpose, the Safety Advisory Group at Bassetlaw District Council are here to help and advise with the planning details to help your event go safely.

The role of the Safety Advisory Group (SAG) is to promote good standards of safety at all public events within the District and ensure that best practice is followed to:

  • Provide a high level of safety at public events;
  • Promote Good practice in safety and welfare planning for events;
  • Ensure events cause minimal adverse impact on the local community

How do I start?

The Nottinghamshire Planning Guide provides a lot of helpful information to help you understand the various elements of Event Planning.  This can be used alongside national guidance documents to help get a better understanding of everything from risk assessments and insurance to emergency planning and number of stewards required.

Who do I need to tell?

There may be many departments within Bassetlaw District Council and many partner organisations that may need to know about your event e.g. our Licensing Department, Nottinghamshire Police, East Midlands Ambulance etc, 

To allow you to get the information and support that you need, an Event Notification Document in.  This will enable the event to be registered with the SAG and the help, advice and guidance process will begin.
