Fireworks Safety

Free Voluntary Firework Display Registration Scheme

Are you planning to hold a public firework display?

If the answer is yes then please read the information below.

To ensure that everyone enjoys a happy, accident free event, the Council runs a free Voluntary Firework Display Registration Scheme for those organising firework displays in the area. Access a list of these registered firework displays.

Once a completed application form is received, an appointment will be made to carry out an advisory site visit and some recommendations for improvement to assist you in delivering a safe event may be provided.

Successful applications will be issued with a Certificate of Registration.

If you would like to apply for a registration please contact the Commercial Team - Public Protection
