Street parties and public events

Road closures for special events

Bromley Council is able to close all or part of a road to facilitate a special event on or near the highway.  Events may include, Christmas lights, street markets, sporting events and Remembrance Day services.

The procedure for large events follows that for street parties, however, there are some additional requirements

Please provide an additional 2 weeks (a total of 12 weeks) notice, although earlier notification is preferable.  This is to allow for additional consultation with TfL buses, emergency services and other forward planning activities.

Events which are likely to generate traffic may cause traffic disruption.  We would expect a Traffic Management Plan to be provided by the event organiser explaining the procedures for managing vehicles, showing diversion routes, the locations of temporary signage or any other temporary arrangements.

Cost

The fee for processing a road closure for such an event is £552. 

Parking

In addition high volumes of vehicular traffic to an area may cause parking issues. It may be appropriate to implement temporary waiting restrictions as a result. Where this is the case there is charge of £186 to the event organiser.

We will make sure the correct notices are erected.  It is the responsibility of the event organiser to implement the parking cones.
