Stroud District Council has waived the cost of street party road closures to enable communities to get together and celebrate The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, marking her 70-year reign. The £85 fee will be waived for one-day not-for-profit events held over the Jubilee bank holiday period of 2 – 5 June.
If a road closure is required for an event, an application must still be made via the SDC website before 22 April to allow at least six weeks for a statutory consultation to take place. A page on the SDC website has been created with advice about how to plan a street party, and whether other licenses may be required, for example if alcohol will be on sale, or amplified music played.
Jubilee event organisers are encouraged to submit a simple online event notification form (from the above web page) which will allow officers to get in touch and offer relevant advice, including whether licences must be applied for.
