Street parties for the Diamond Jubilee - 2 June 2012
The Diamond Jubilee weekend, starting on 2 June, is a great chance to get out with your neighbours.
We want everyone to have a great time and make their party go with a swing, so we've made it easier for you to get your party organised by bringing together the information you will need on this page.
Key deadline dates for forms:
- Road closure application forms deadline: 4 May 2012
- Temporary event notices deadline: 17 May 2012
Apply for a temporary road closure
The council organises road closure orders for events like street parties. You must send your request for a road closure to our offices by 4 May 2012.
Licensing – temporary event notices
Most street parties will not need a licence.
But if you want to sell alcohol or provide entertainment like live music, a film or performers you will need to apply for a temporary event notice (TEN). This costs £21 and you can get the applications forms here, or apply online.
If you need a TEN for an event, we need to receive your application no later than 17 May 2012.
If you are planning to organise a large event (500+ people) please read our event management guide.
Waste collections and cleaning up after your event
Waste collection crews will be working on the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee bank holiday on Tuesday 5 June but not Monday 4 June. This means collections will run a day later than normal this week. You can check your collection dates here (page three contains Bank Holiday collection details).
While not compulsory, we strongly advise organisers to ensure they have adequate insurance cover in place. This is in the event that they are held legally liable to pay compensation if an accident occurs or some third party's property is damaged.
