Council waives fees for Royal Wedding street closures

Posted on Wednesday 16th February 2011 at 8:27 am by SH (Editor)

South Gloucestershire Council is making it easy for residents to celebrate the Royal Wedding by holding a street party in their neighbourhood.

The council is waiving the normal fee for road closures for street parties held on Friday 29th April, and in most cases party organisers only have to fill in a single form.

All residents have to do is complete a road closure request form on the council’s website at www.southglos.gov.uk/streetparty. The completion of this form is all that is required unless residents are planning on selling alcohol, employing street traders or planning organised entertainment. This webpage also links to websites featuring lots of information and handy tips for making the best out of your street’s Royal Wedding celebration.

Cllr Heather Goddard, executive member for communities, said: “The Royal Wedding will be a time for national celebration, so the council is making it easy for residents to celebrate the Royal nuptials by minimising bureaucracy and waiving the road closure fee for people holding street parties. I hope that South Gloucestershire will be awash with bunting and alive with the sounds of families enjoying themselves on 29th April.”
