Street parties and public events
Road closures for special events
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.
The fee for processing a road closure for such an event is £564.
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 £190 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.
