Residents and access to restricted areas
- Police and event organisers are engaging directly with residents who are in the immediate vicinity of the venue to agree access and security arrangements, including any service requirements such as essential food deliveries.
- Some restricted areas in Falmouth will require residents and business workers to provide two forms of current identification linked to their home or business address in order to gain access in vehicles to those homes or businesses. These might be a council tax bill, utility bill, bank statement (dated within last three months) or driving licence. Photo ID is not a requirement, however, it may speed up the process.
- Businesses in the Event Square area will be impacted from 1 to 18 June. Customers should contact businesses direct to check opening/access arrangements.
- Schools may be impacted by travel disruptions/delays. Please check directly with the relevant school for updates.
Essential services/care workers
- Residents who receive essential council services or help and support from volunteers will continue to receive these services. Appropriate ID will need to be provided by those needing access to the addresses of people living in restricted areas.
- Emergency services are working to ensure normal service will be provided.
