Street parties will be taking place up and down the country over the special Bank Holiday Weekend of 2 - 5 June to mark the Queen's seven decades on the throne.

A Temporary Road Closure application is not needed for parties organised by and for residents in one or two small streets without external publicity.

The orders are necessary if you are organising a public event on a major road. In those circumstances, residents will need to complete an application for a Temporary Road Closure.

Councillor Roy Briscoe, Cabinet Member for Community Services and Culture for Chichester District Council, says: "There has been a groundswell of support for a coming together of communities in honour of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

"It is going to be a wonderful celebration of our monarch's seven decades of public service. However, it's important to make sure that your street party is properly organised. If you are in any doubt about whether you need a Temporary Road Closure order, please do get in touch with our Democratic Services team."

The deadline for applications is 5pm on Wednesday, 20 April in order to have the road closures in place on the Platinum Jubilee Bank Holiday Weekend. Applications received after this date will not be granted.
