Land belonging to Taunton Deane Borough Council can be hired depending on our approval and the organiser obtaining a permit.

The events or promotions that require our permission could include:

How do I use it?

You can now book your event on our open and promotional spaces via our online Events Portal. Event bookings must be received at least 28 days before the date of your event.

How much does it cost?

Promotional Spaces

The costs associated with promotional work in the town centre.

*This rate will apply to charities who employ companies to sign up supporters rather than local groups who are fundraising. The discretion on who to charge will be delegated to the Marketing and Place Manager.


The charge varies from site to site and in addition to the daily hire charge a separate fixed price of £66 including VAT will apply to cover the administrative tasks involved in checking the applications and raising the permit to use the land.

The cost covers the exclusive use of the space, general administrative charges to process your booking and officer time and the use of electricity and water.

Additional charges will apply if you require street traders or other licences.
