Rallies longer than 5 days

For rallies lasting longer than 5 days (5 consecutive 24-hour periods) we need to use our Paragraph 4 eemption which has a few more conditions than the 5-day paragraph 6 exemption.

For clarity, it is not permitted to back-to-back 5 day rallies.

In particular we

should seek the views of the Local Planning Authority before making arrangements for a Paragraph 4 event (and if in any doubt a Paragraph 6 event), particularly those next to a commercial site, to ensure there are no planning restrictions or other objections to the use of a site, and to consider avoiding those sites if objections are raised’

See Natural England Guidance. complying with this is a condition of our Exemption Certificate.
