Community

Other people may be affected by your event, for example, transport providers, local shops or local interest or amenity groups. Other stakeholders would include everyone who needs to be involved in the organisation of the event or informed about it, and this is normally dependent upon the size and nature of the event.

People such as neighbours and local businesses may be adversely affected by the event, for example by noise, parking, litter and extra traffic. It's a good idea to let people know what will be happening, and listen to what they have to say.

There may be easy ways to avoid problems, and if you have a good Event Plan you can reassure people you are taking their views on board and will address their issues.

Think about ways in which your event can benefit local people and businesses too and consider approaching them to see if they would like to be involved.
