Road closure for non-charity or community events
All costs involved for both the closure and diversion signing will have to be met by the person requesting the closure.
The current cost of a road closure or temporary restriction notice for an event is £836. Diversion signage, no parking signs and no parking cones can be supplied at an additional cost. The cost is payable before the event commences.
If traffic management is to be outsourced to a contractor all plans and designs must be submitted along with a risk assessment and method statement, before consent of the event can be given.
As there is a legal and consultative process to be undertaken, at least eight weeks notice before the closure is required, however please note that approval is subject to road works programmed in the borough.
In most cases a site meeting will have to take place between the Council and the event organiser.
Please fill out the form and return to the council either via email or to the address stated on the form.
