Road closures for non-charity events

All costs involved for both the closure and diversion signing will have to be met by the person requesting the closure.

How it works

If you wish to request a road closure for a non-charity or community event, you must give at least eight weeks notice. This is required so we can manage the legal and consultative process involved.

Approval is subject to roadworks programmed in the Borough, and we will usually need to arrange a site meeting with the event organiser.

You should not start organising your event until approval is given.


The current cost of a road closure or temporary restriction notice for an event is £1,143.

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.
