Temporary Event Notice Online Application Form

Supporting Documentation

Your application form must be accompanied by the required fee.

Further Requirements

You will also need to:

  • apply at least 10 clear working days before your event.  Clear working days do not include the day we receive your application or the day of the event.  Last submission dates for 2020

  • send a copy of the application form to the Police and Environmental Protection at least 10 working days before the event if you choose to submit a hard copy application.  If you apply online, we will notify the Police and Environmental Protection on your behalf.

  • be at least 18 years old.

Your event must:

  • have fewer than 500 people at all times – including staff running the event
  • last no more than 168 hours (7 days)

You can only apply for a TEN as an individual, not an organisation.

The latest you can apply for a ‘Late TEN’ is 5 clear working days before the event (but not earlier than 9 clear working days).  If you don’t hold a personal licence, you can serve up to 2 late TENs per year.  If you hold a personal licence, the limit is 10.  Late TENs count towards the total number of permitted TENs.
