Public processions and marches

The Code of Conduct on Public Processions operates within the guidance issued to councils under Section 65A of the Civic Government (Scotland) Act 1982. It sets out the changes to the law of public processions made by the Police, Public Order and Criminal Justice (Scotland) Act 2006 and what the Council needs to take account of when assessing notifications to hold a procession.

It also sets out the steps that the Council should take when considering whether it is necessary for it to prevent a procession from taking place or place conditions on it under Part V of the Civic Government (Scotland) Act 1982.

The use of the term ‘procession’ in this code of conduct covers all parades, marches, and demonstrations etc whether organised by civic, cultural, political, arts or religious organisations, community or other interest groups.
