As the summer approaches many open-air parties take place, often licenced and with music which can give rise to complaints from neighbours.
For clarity, the Douzaine wish to make the following statement without prejudice:-
Landowners under the “THE LAND & DEVELOPMENT (GUERNSEY) LAW 2005” do not need to apply for a change of use, providing that they are single day events and there would be no more than 7 events per year, without “development” (additional constructed structures).
Those wishing to hold such an event with or without a Marquee are requested to follow best practice taking into account the well-being of all parties in close proximity and should adhere to the following list of points to be used as guidance: this list is not exhaustive or specific to the site and circumstances:
The event should cease by 11.30pm i.e., all guests to vacate the site and nearby area
