Greenspace Permits

These permits apply for people wishing to use space in our parks and open spaces to carry out their business, such as fitness training and exercise classes, with paying customers.

A key reason behind the need for such permits for those using the parks as part of their business is safety - to ensure that all hirers have their own public liability insurance, are completing the necessary risk assessments, and complying with the relevant Government guidelines.

Pricing for 2022/23

Following a comprehensive benchmarking exercise with neighbouring Surrey boroughs on outdoor personal training, we will be introducing an annual permit from 1 September 2021. Anyone wishing to run fitness sessions in borough parks will be required to have a permit - please complete the online form and submit the relevant paperwork including risk assessments and public liability insurance.
