Organising a Street Party

Now that the Government roadmap has been announced, applications for Street Parties on Council land can be considered. Street Parties will need to be planned in accordance with the national guidelines and it should be noted that they are subject to change with limited notice.  

We have yet to receive details of the final regulations but the summary of the proposed steps can be downloaded at:

Prime Minister sets out roadmap to cautiously ease lockdown restrictions - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)

The Organiser must comply with all Government laws and guidance.

Applications for Street Parties to be held from 17th May onwards where there will be up to 30 people can be considered now. 

From 21st June (subject to Government guidance and roadmap) there is no restriction on numbers.

Any Street Parties planned before the 21st June need to consider the restrictions in place in each of the relevant steps.

Street parties are street events that have been organised by and for all residents in 1 or 2 small streets, without external publicity. They usually mean that the public roads and pathways of the street(s) must be closed for the event.

Because of this reason, you need to get permission from us before you hold a street party. To do this please complete and submit an application form for a street party permit. You can do this by using our online form, or by downloading the application form found in our related downloads and either posting or emailing it to us.

Organising Your Street Party

We encourage all street party organisers to talk to us well in advance of the proposed event to ensure everything runs as smoothly and safely as possible. We can answer any queries you may have, advise you on your responsibilities and our requirements.
