Event organisers are required by law to inform us of, and obtain the consent for, events which take place on the highway or are likely to affect the highway.

We're responsible for processing all requests for traffic management which may be required to run an event safely - see our events guidance notes.

Apply for events consent

Please give us as much time as possible to help you plan your event. We require a minimum of 6 weeks to process your application.

Complete the event notification and application form and return it to the Traffic Management Team as soon as possible.

We'll use the information you provide to:

  • issue the necessary licences for your event
  • help you with road closures
  • help you with 'no waiting' cones or other temporary traffic management measures

Cost of events consent

The cost will depend on whether any public notices or advertising are required or whether any traffic signs are necessary.
