The Parish Council has to give formal permission for events, outside of normal scheduled sports fixtures, to take place on its grounds. This covers fun days, sports tournaments, village fetes, charity events, etc.
Clubs that are based on our open spaces at South Way, Toms Lane Bedmond, Langleybury, Manor House and elsewhere in the parish, lease their buildings from the Parish Council and hire use of the pitches, they do not own or manage the grounds, the Parish Council does.
Organised commercial training groups, “military fitness” type organisations and commercial dog walkers are also covered by these requirements.
Filming and use by production companies is also subject to prior permission. The requirements for this type of use will be dealt with on a case by case basis, the main concern being the potential damage heavy production vehicles can cause to playing fields.
Below is a link to the document pack that includes the requirements that organisers will need to meet, to ensure the Parish Council is in a position to give permission for an event to go ahead.
