The purpose of this form is to capture enough information to provide you with provisional approval. Provisional approval is sufficient for you to advertise your event and to start your planning. Once you have received provisional approval you will be required to provide, depending on the scale of your event, a range of documents as detailed in the Stage 2 Form. Only once you have received confirmation of final approval from an officer of Swanage Town Council do you formally have permission to go ahead. We aim to do this at least 6 weeks before the event, although this is usually dependent on the submission of your relevant documents.
Note that all events, unless otherwise advised by officers of Swanage Town Council, should notify Purbeck District Council's 'Safety Advisory Group' before approval by Swanage Town Council.
