7. Events to restart on East Devon District Council land

The relaxation of lockdown rules and new guidelines from the Government has enabled East Devon District Council (EDDC) to agree that the process for hiring EDDC land can commence again from 3rd August.

The council facilitates over 300 events across East Devon parks, gardens and beaches every year. Events range from local community events, markets, live theatre, fun fairs and weddings. Event Organisers will all be required to adhere with Covid-19 secure guidelines to ensure their event is safe to take place and permissions will be subject to any future changes in guidance.

The Events team at the council can offer advice to any potential event organiser on the safety measures they may need to undertake for their event to take place and a specific Covid-19 risk assessment which shows how social distancing, hand sanitising and the safety of attendees is maintained will need to be completed by all event organisers before permission is given for an event to take place.
