Temporary event notice

You will need three copies of your temporary event notice, one copy of the temporary event notice must be given to each of the following responsible authorities at least 10 clear working days before the event. ‘Ten working days’ notice means ten working days exclusive of the day on which the event is to start, the day on which the notice is given and Bank Holidays.

  • Licensing Authority
  • Environmental Protection Team
  • Derbyshire Constabulary

If there is an objection, from either the police or the Council's Environmental Protection Team, to the proposed events, which adversely affect the four licensing objectives (crime and disorder, public safety, prevention of public nuisance, protection of children from harm) and the matter cannot be resolved informally, there will be a hearing to decide whether or not the event will proceed. 

We must acknowledge and return a copy of the temporary event notice to the applicant on the working day after it is received. This copy of the Notice must be displayed on the premises during the event.

You must complete the Temporary event notice - application form and send this with the relevant fee. Our‌ licensing payments page‌ explains what fees apply and how to pay them. If you have paid by debit/credit card or by bacs before you have submitted your application form then you must include a copy of your receipt with the application. Any application received without the payment will not be processed.

If posting or handing in the application form(s) (except minor variations) at our reception you are required to also serve a copy of the application, including the accompanying documentation, to the responsible authorities on the same day as the application is given to us. If the application is submitted electronically, we will provide copies to the responsible authorities. We can only accept applications for premises within our local authority area.

You will need three copies of your temporary event notice, one copy of the temporary event notice must be given to each of the following responsible authorities. Late notices can be given no later than five working days but no earlier than nine working days before the event in relation to which the notice is given. A late notice given later than five working days before the event to which it relates will be returned as invalid and is therefore not authorised. 'Working days' are exclusive of the day on which the event is to start, the day on which the notice is given and Bank Holidays.

The number of late notices that can be given in any one calendar year is limited to 10 for personal licence holders and two for non-personal licence holders. These count towards the total number of temporary event notices (ie 50 temporary event notices per year for personal licence holders and five temporary event notices for non-personal licence holders).

If there is an objection from either the police or the Council's Environmental Protection Team, the event cannot go ahead as a counter notice will have been issued.

Any business buying alcohol from a UK wholesaler for onward supply to their customers will need to check that their wholesaler has been approved by Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC) under the Alcohol Wholesaler Registration Scheme (AWRS). For further information see the HM Revenue and Customs factsheet.

If the premises has a premises licence or club premises certificate which you want to use to carry on licensable activities, it is possible that any conditions which apply to the licence or certificate may be imposed on the temporary event notice.

If the premises have gaming machines and you have a notification of two machines or less in place, then the notification is null and void for the duration of the temporary event notice. All gaming machines must be switched off so that they cannot be played during this time.

All events, including those in aid of charity, must meet recognised safety standards. An event organiser is responsible under the law for the safety of everyone at the event, including the public, employees and volunteers.

Information and guidance on planning an event can be found on the Derbyshire Prepared website.

Yes, you can withdraw the temporary event notice but it will still be included in the total amount of tens applications that you are permitted.
