Please note events on council land have been cancelled in response to the national effort to reduce the spread of Coronavirus. We are unable to accept any new applications currently. This means we will not approve any road closures for ‘stay at home’ street parties at this time.
We will review the situation as advice and circumstances change.
Please review our advice on holding a responsible stay at home street party.
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.

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.
