Placing a Notice

How to publish in the Gazette online & in print.

The Gazette provides a permanent, official public record of important statutory and non-statutory notices. Many notices that are placed in The Gazette are required by law (statutory), and many others are published because it is deemed to be in the public interest that the information they contain be made available in the public domain. Statutory notices can only be placed by people who have the authority to create an official record of fact.

Types of notices:

  • Official - Government & Parish

    • Health
    • Legislation
    • Tax
  • Statutory - Legal
    • Insolvency & Administration
    • Winding Up
    • Change of Name & Next of Kin
    • Deceased Estate

A notice is not:

  • A family notice such as the announcement of a birth, marriage or death
  • An advertisement for goods or services
  • An advertisement for employment
  • A personal advertisment or message

Anyone may place an informational notice. However, statutory and government notices can only be placed by people who have the authority to create an official record of fact – for example, civil servants, parish officials, insolvency practitioners, solicitors, or executors of a will.
