We require a minimum of 10 working days to process a basic events application and facilitate simple events activities.
It can often take longer to process and approve an application, depending on what is proposed. Please use our timescale tool (XLS, 94KB) to check whether you have enough time to apply before you pay the application fee as it is non-refundable.
The council is not accepting any bookings for use of the Bandstand area at Victoria Embankment Gardens until further notice.
Following a comprehensive review of our kerbside permissions, approval has been given for Westminster City Council to increase and re-model suspension and dispensation charges.
Unmanned aerial vehicle filming
We are not currently accepting applications for the use of unmanned aerial vehicles/drones.
There have been some recent changes to the process for applying for street trading licenses for events, as well as changes to fees.
