2. Do organisers need to obtain notices of no objection if meetings or processions are to be held in private premises such as private roads?

Organisers do not need to obtain notices of no objection if:


(1) it is a meeting of not more than 500 people;


(2) it is a meeting in any school registered or provisionally registered or exempted under the Education Ordinance (Cap. 279), or in any educational establishment established by any Ordinance, and the meeting is organised or approved by an accredited society of that school and with the consent of the management of such school;


(3) it is a procession not on a public highway, thoroughfare, or in a public park.


Otherwise organisers are still required to give prior notification to the Commissioner of Police.
