Planning a public event

Gosport's Safety Advisory Group (SAG) (link to protocol) liaises with those organising events in the Borough to promote safety and the wellbeing of attendees and to minimise inconvenience to residents, businesses and the general public. It also considers event implications from a multi-agency perspective and can advise event organisers on procedures for a safe event.


The membership of the Gosport Safety Advisory Group (SAG) comprises senior officers from various agencies operating in the Borough of Gosport, including the emergency services (Police, Fire and Rescue Service, Maritime Coastguard Agency, South Central Ambulance Service). Hampshire County Council (Emergency Planning, Highways and Traffic Management) and Gosport Borough Council Services (Building Control, Legal, Environmental Health, Licensing, Emergency Planning and Traffic Management).


SAG will generally consider 'large scale public events' where more than 500 people are expected although smaller events may be considered depending on their nature.


When planning an event SAG should be provided with notice as follows:

  • For an event involving more than 10,000 people a minimum of 6 months notice
  • For an event involving between 500 - 10,000 people a minimum of 3 months notice
  • For an event requiring a road closure a minimum of 3 months notice


The SAG Administrator can be contacted by email sagadmin@gosport.gov.uk or Tel: 023 9254 5425.
