Road closures for charity or community events

Information on road closures for events.

If you are holding a street party, please read the guidance on our street parties page instead.

How it works

If you wish to request a road closure for an event, you must give at least eight weeks notice. This is required so we can manage the legal and consultative process involved.

Approval is subject to roadworks programmed in the Borough, and we will usually need to arrange a site meeting with the event organiser.

Please do not start organising your event until approval is given.


The current cost of a road closure or temporary restriction notice for an event is £1,524.

Diversion signage, no parking signs and no parking cones can be supplied at an additional cost. The cost is payable before the event commences.

If traffic management is to be outsources to a contractor all plans and designs must be submitted along with a risk assessment and method statement, before consent of the event can be given.
