About the Safety Advisory Group

South Gloucestershire Council has established an independent Safety Advisory Group (SAG) to help event organisers to ensure that public events take place safely and successfully. It provides independent advice to event organisers who retain the legal responsibility for ensuring a safe event.

Through consultation and joint working between the council and its partners its aim is to standardise the approach to all organised large scale events staged in a public place, on a highway and on land open to the public in South Gloucestershire.

The intention of the SAG is to ensure that organisers of licensed and non-licensed have considered the impact of the activity on

  • crime and disorder
  • public safety
  • public nuisance
  • protection of children from harm, and
  • any other relevant legislation

The Safety Advisory Group itself as a body has no legal powers.  These lie with individual members who retain primacy in their individual specialisms.
