16. Coronavirus (COVID-19) information

Following newly introduced government guidelines regarding containment of COVID-19, East Devon District Council is asking you to consider the implications for your event.

The Government has published its latest guidance on social distancing and mass gatherings in relation to COVID-19. It is advising that mass gatherings should not take place, so we are asking Event Organisers to please consider this advice in relation to your planned event.

Please review your plans for safely staffing your event, whether contractors can still provide equipment, supplies and their staff and whether you can take steps to protect the public whilst observing the government advice on social distancing. Can you please then let us know if you plan to continue with your event.

If you are hiring additional services from East Devon District Council, we may no longer be able to provide these for your events.

As of today, the emergency services are no longer supporting large gatherings, which may impact the safety and support of your events.

If you wish to rearrange your event, please let me know and we can move your booking to another date, however we do anticipate the next 8 weeks to be very uncertain times. We will be in contact if anything changes.

This is an evolving situation and we are following government guidance closely, if they take further steps to restrict or ban events we will contact you further. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact the StreetScene Events Team on 01404 515616.
