Please note for bookings on council land: The council prefers clean energy such as solar powered electricity as part of its desire for events in the borough to be carbon neutral by 2025. The council understands that currently this may not be possible due to cost and manufacturing and therefore permits the use of red diesel generators at events. Petrol generators are not allowed.
This will require permission, please contact Hampshire County Council - firstname.lastname@example.org
