There is concern the event, which attracts two million people over the August bank holiday weekend, could spark a repeat of the recent trouble.
A carnival insider confirmed to Event they are still working on the event as if it is going to happen.
"The directors are speaking with police and the council and assessing things on a day-to-day basis," they told us. "They would like it to go ahead but understand the severity of the issue. It’s early days yet."
A statement issued later read: "Given the huge number of people who take part in Carnival crime rates are low, and our policing style in recent years has ensured that less people become victims of crime. We know that everyone who loves Carnival wants that sueess to continue this year."
