Public processions

Information on the public processions that have been approved, pending or rejected.

    Public processions, marches and parades are all licensed by the local authorities who work closely with Police Scotland to ensure that these events are organised in a safe manner and cause minimal disruption and inconvenience.

    Following a review by the Scottish Government, the rules governing public processions, marches and parades have been changed and organisers of public processions, marches and parades must give us at least 28 days notice of an intention to hold a public procession rather than the previous 7 days.

    To ensure that communities are aware of public processions, marches and parades in their area, we will publish details of all applications below. These details are also forwarded to all organisations on our opt-in list. Details of public processions applied for in the last 5 years can be viewed below.

    Most public processions, marches and parades held within South Ayrshire are traditional, annual events that usually pass without incident. If, however, you wish to comment on a parade which is planned in your area, you can do so in writing to the address shown on this page at least two weeks before the public procession is due to take place.

    Please complete the Notice and Risk Assessment of Proposal to Hold a Public Procession form if holding a March, Parade or Public Procession. You must also agree and adhere to the Code of Conduct.
