Merton Event Management and Safety Advisory Groups (SAG)

Following a review of Merton’s Event Management arrangements, we make four recommendations which will establish an improved process for event applications, their tracking, triage and processing together with a new events policy and clarity as to when and how a SAG should be convened. The benefits of adopting the recommendations include:

- Events that are safe, successful and well run
- Supporting Civic Pride: making it easier for event organisers to apply for an operate events in Merton attracting people and inward investment to Merton. Making Merton a destination for events.
- Supporting local businesses and the night time economy
- Facilitating the promotion of events through our comms team
- Structured method of engaging with partners to ensure safe and well-run events
