Street parties in support of Big Lunch – road closure fees waived

Published Monday, 4 February 2019

Applications from residents and Street Friends applying to hold a street party in support of the Big Lunch 2019 on 1-2 June are again being processed free of charge.

Whilst party organisers always need the council’s permission to hold an event on the road or pavement, fees only normally apply if a road needs to be closed.  The confirmation of road closure fees being waived in support the Big Lunch follow the pattern in previous years and also support the council’s Street Friends initiative. 

Applicants for street parties are being encouraged to apply in good time, to allow for the application to be processed and potential road closure orders to be issued.  The closing date for applications is 23 March 2019.
