There is plenty to celebrate this year with the Olympics and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. The Council has published a handy guide to organising a street party, with all you need to know about road closures, parking bays, insurance and food hygiene. All the details are here.
You need to give the Council six week’s notice and it is essential that the Council knows about any plans to hold street parties around the Olympics, and in particular on the torch relay day. The local Police team want to make sure they have a full list of everything happening locally for safety purposes on the day.
