Event Planning

Coronavirus and Events

All applications for events on DDC land will each be considered on merit, in line with government guidance, as to whether the event is able to go ahead.  Please ensure that along with the completion of the event notification form, the updated event management plan and risk assessment is also submitted to ensure you are in line with all COVID-19 guidance.  We recommend that all documentation is submitted at least 28 days in advance of your event.

For events on non DDC land it is at the discretion of the event organiser in line with government advice including hand washing facilities and provision of hand sanitiser etc.  Please ensure that an updated copy of your risk assessment is submitted to to show you are in line with all COVID-19 guidance.

For Remembrance Services please see the latest guidance.
