Organising an event

The Safety Advisory Group (SAG) provides a forum for discussing and advising on public safety at events.

Members of the SAG include Thames Valley Police, South Central Ambulance Service, NHS, Bucks & Milton Keynes Fire & Rescue Service, Chiltern and South Bucks District Councils, and Bucks County Council for Highways and Resilience.  

The aim is to help organisers with the planning of an event and to encourage coordination between relevant agencies. The SAG is a non-statutory body which does not have legal powers or responsibilities, and is not empowered to approve or prohibit events from taking place. Event organisers and others involved in the running of an event, retain the principal legal duties for ensuring public safety.

If you are intending to hold an event (large or small), please submit an Event Notification Form (3 months in advance of the event) and provide additional supporting documentation such as risk assessments and Event Management Plan, templates of which can be downloaded below.
