You must apply at least 10 clear working days before your event - clear working days do not include the day your council receives your application or the day of the event.

You can’t send a notice if your event starts in 5 days or less

If you apply for a TEN within 10 working days of your event, your application is known as a late TEN. 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 the police or Environmental Health object to a late TEN, the notice won’t be valid and you can’t hold the event.

You will have to pay a fee of £21.00

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

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.

You will need:

  • Your National Insurance number
  • A credit or debit card
  • Personal Licence holders will need their licence details

Please Note:

Notices may not cover a period more than 7 days in length from start to finish. For example a notice for an event been held one Saturday and then on the following Saturday, this requires two separate notices. 

We are unable to refund any temporary event notice, even if the notice is invalid, rejected or if the event doesn't go ahead.
