Public Processions (Parades)

Information on holding public processions (parades) in West Lothian and how to make a representation about the procession or a complaint about the notification process.

The Scottish Government has published Guidance on Processions about organising processions during the covid -19 pandemic 
Please carefully consider that guidance before submitting notifications of any planned processions and provide us with the required additional risk assessments.  

Notifications of processions can be emailed to the Licensing Team and will be processed in the usual manner. You will be contacted if a Safety Advisory Group meeting is required before permission can be granted.

If you decide to cancel or postpone your event please let us know as soon as possible.

Every person organising a procession or parade has to give notice to the Council no later than 28 days before the event of their intention to hold a procession or parade. In exceptional circumstances the Council can dispense with this notice period.
This page gives details of current notifications of proposals to hold public processions in West Lothian, information of processions already approved for this year and information regarding previously approved processions.
