More time to apply for Jubilee party road closures
This news article was published more than a year ago. Some of the information may no longer be accurate.
The council has extended the deadline for applications to 30 April, meaning residents have four more weeks in which to submit their plans.
Residents who want to close their road for a street party must give the council a description of the event and also notify neighbours of their plans. There is also usually a £124 fee, but this has been waived for all Jubilee street parties.
South Gloucestershire executive member for communities James Hunt said: “At a time when we’re all leading ever more busy and mobile lives, street parties are a great way to meet your neighbours and build community spirit.
“The Diamond Jubilee is a fantastic opportunity to throw a party and with the waiving of the normal road closure fee there’s no excuse not to get into the party spirit this June.
“I hope everybody has a wonderful Jubilee weekend and look forward to seeing a wide range of events and activities across South Gloucestershire.”
As well as street parties, community events taking place in South Gloucestershire for the Diamond Jubilee include a Family Fun Day on 7 June in Kingswood Park. There will be a range of family activities including music and refreshments with free entry for all.
Details of how to apply for a road closure application are available online or by telephoning 01454 863 040.
