Procedure for Obtaining a Temporary Place of Assembly Licence
The procedure for obtaining a place of assembly licence under the Public Health Act 1997 has changed following the introduction of the new Building Control Legislation in 2004.
If you are planning a public event that involves the use of existing buildings that are not currently licensed as Places of Assembly and/or any temporary structures then you must initially contact a Building Surveyor. The Building Surveyor is required to assess and issue:
- Certificate of Suitability for existing buildings
- Certificate of Likely Compliance (or a letter of exemption) for temporary structures
These documents from the Building Surveyor must be submitted to the Council before the issue of a Place of Assembly Licence will be considered.
The attached information sheet contains the procedure for public events that involve the use of:
- Existing Buildings
- New Temporary Structures
- No Buildings or Structures
