Mendip District Council are reminding neighbours and community groups who are looking to hold street parties in June to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee to check whether they may need a temporary road closure – and to apply this week!
Mendip requires 6 weeks to process road closure applications for street parties on no-through roads such as cul-de-sacs, and 12 weeks for road closures for special events. This means that time is running out for planned celebrations in early June.
Mendip will not be charging for applications and full details can be found on their website.
For guidance and information on holding street parties or events in Somerset for the Jubilee, visit the Platinum Jubilee in Somerset website.
