Marches and Processions

Public processions, marches and parades are all licensed by the Council who work closely with Police Scotland to ensure that these events are organised in a safe manner and cause minimal disruption and inconvenience.

If you wish to apply, please complete the Notice of Proposal to Hold a Public Procession form, including Risk Assessment and Code of Conduct, which you must agree and adhere to.
