How to run a Diamond Jubilee street party
April 24, 2012
Road closure fees for street parties will be waived this summer so estates can be turned red, white and blue to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and Olympic Games.
Residents are being offered advice on how to get the party started in the right way with a Safety Advisory Group (SAG) events pack.
Laura Driscoll, licensing team leader at Bracknell Forest Council, said: “The event will be considered by members of SAG and the council will take care of any road closure administration and will provide party organisers with free road closure signage if required. We have waived the fee so that the majority of cul-de-sacs and small residential roads will not have to pay for their road to be closed.
“The group will also sort out any refuse collections that need to be made on the day so they do not disrupt the party.
“The council will advise on any temporary licences required and any public liability insurance needed.”
