Last chance for people to apply to close their road for a Platinum Jubilee street party

Updated: Apr 6, 2022

More than 100 streets across Leicestershire have so far applied to hold celebrations to mark The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

Leicestershire County Council has received 113 applications for road closures to allow parties to mark Elizabeth II’s 70 year reign.

Besides street parties, a wide array of other events will be held, including garden fetes, community picnics, local fairs, and music events.

Most of the events are planned during the extended bank holiday weekend from Thursday 2 June to Sunday 5 June.

Residents have two weeks left to ask to close their own road for a street parties and applications must be submitted by Friday 15 April 2022.

Any application received after that date will not be processed.

The usual fees have been waived by the county council for road closures making it cheaper for residents to get together to mark this special occasion.

Anyone who wants to apply to close their road for a Platinum Jubilee street party can apply for free through the council’s website.

Information about organising an event on council owned land or greenspaces and guidance about licensable activities such as playing music and selling food and drink can also be found on the council’s website.

Council officials are asking anyone planning outdoor events, even if a road closure is not required, to notify them to ensure they do not clash with other planned work, such as road maintenance.

The council is eager to learn about all the events and activities that are taking place in Leicestershire, and residents can add information about their event or activity to an interactive map on the council’s website.
