Notting Hill Carnival 2022

Advice for businesses


Given the road restrictions in the area, please arrange for your deliveries to take place earlier in the week before Carnival, or latest on Saturday 27 August. 

No vehicle deliveries will be possible on Sunday 28 and Monday 29 August, and early deliveries scheduled for Tuesday 30 August may be affected by the removal of the closures from 6am. 

Waste collection

Your usual business waste collection will be operating a normal service on Saturday 27 August, an early collection on Sunday 28 August up to 9am, and no collection on Monday 29 August. However, as part of the Carnival overnight clear-up, waste put out on the pavement at night will be cleared. 

Carnival-related events on business premises

Please carefully check your premises licence to ensure that you are able to provide Carnival related events during the Bank Holiday weekend. If the activities you intend differs from your normal day-to-day operation, then you may need to submit a Temporary Event Notice (TEN).

Trading alcohol where this is not usual business.

In order to sell alcohol you must have either a valid premises licence or a TEN in place for that address. A TEN costs £21 and allows individuals to temporarily provide licensable activities, such as selling alcohol. The last date for submitting a standard TEN for the bank holiday weekend is Friday 12 August 2022. We recommend discussing your proposals with the Police and Environmental Health prior to submitting your TEN, as additional documentation may be required.

Chairs and tables on the footway or highway

To ensure the safety of visitors to the event, any business in the Carnival footprint that has been granted permission to place tables and chairs on a temporary footway extension within suspended parking bays or an equivalent area where there are other kerb side markings needs to remove all furniture, platforms, barriers or decks no later than 5pm on Friday 26 August, before the start of Carnival. Any items found to be still on the footway or highway from Saturday 27 August will be removed by the Council.
