Safety, Management and Licencing of Events

Safe management of events in premises and public spaces including on roads

Events are an important part of the social and community life in County Meath. Each year a number of parades, concerts, food fairs, festivals and historic re-enactments take place.

These events provide entertainment to our citizens and encourage visitors to our beautiful county and coastline.

Meath County Council encourages and supports these events. The Council has produced the guide below in order to inform the safe management of events in its premises and public spaces.

These include events organised/supported by employees of Meath County Council or may be events with external organisers and committees.

An event is a non-routine planned public or social occasion.

Meath County Council is a notifiable body as part of the planning process for large Events, Concerts etc.
