Applying takes around 15 minutes.
Before you start
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
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.
