Street parties for the Royal Wedding and the Big Lunch
Published Thursday, 11 January 2018
Road closure fees for street parties related to the Royal Wedding and the Big Lunch are being waived. Applications must be received by 9 March.
Public liability insurance cover for these events is strongly recommended but not obligatory. Organisers are advised to visit the Big Lunch website www.edenprojectcommunities.com/thebiglunch for further information. However, the council requires that certain conditions are met and these include having diversion and warning signs at each vehicle access point and being able to easily remove tables, chairs and other temporary objects to allow access for emergency vehicles. Similarly, banners and bunting hanging across the road must be secured at a height of at least 7 metres.
Organisers and residents attending street parties and other events are reminded to be aware of security and to remain vigilant at all times. Including not leaving bags unattended, keeping valuables locked away and out of sight, and locking doors and windows, if appropriate.
