Temporary events

COVID-19 update: COVID-19 is a public health emergency. Everyone needs to assess and manage the risks of COVID-19, and, in particular, businesses should consider the risks to their workers and customers. Operators have a legal responsibility to protect workers and others from risk to their health and safety and therefore must make sure that risk assessments for their events address the risks of COVID-19, using the government guidance to inform decisions and control measures. NYCC have produced the following document for event organisers which should be read in conjunction with government guidance:

The HSE have produced some risk assessment guidance and templates here. Event organisers are strongly advised to attach their completed risk assessments when submitting a temporary event notice for consideration by North Yorkshire Police and Environmental Health. You can contact Environmental Health by email to ehts@hambleton.gov.uk for further advice on completing your risk assessments – please do so in good time before your event is due to take place.

Temporary events

When licensable activities are held in premises where the premises or events are not normally licensed, a temporary event notice may be required. 

Standard temporary event notices must be submitted no later than 10 clear working days prior to the start of the event (not including the day of submission or any day of the event). Late temporary event notices must be submitted no later than 5 clear working days prior to the start of the event.
