It is important that everyone in the proposed road is asked for their opinion. This includes all residents and all businesses. A signed petition must be produced to the council when requesting a road closure showing that the majority of people in the street support the closure.
In order to coordinate road closures across the city, we need to have all the applications in before we can let you know about each individual request.
We will confirm we have received your application and then respond again when we have assessed your application.
Please contact us if you want to talk through anything or would like further advice. You can contact the us at firstname.lastname@example.org or on (01273) 293366.
General information on street parties
Brighton & Hove City Council welcomes street parties and understands they can bring great benefits to a local community. We appreciate that these events are often low budget with food and facilities being provided by residents.
Local residents or community groups can apply to close the road to hold street parties in their area. To help you hold a successful street party we have put together a Brighton__Hove_Street_Party_Application_Form_March... for you to complete. The council do not charge for assisting local resident-organised street parties. We only charge if there is a commercial or business element to the event the cost of this is £306.
We will advise you through the steps you need to take but you will need to:
- carry out consultation with all residents in the street using the Petition to Allow Road Closure [XLS 20kb]
- apply to the council for a formal road closure notice
- put out the correct signs and barriers to make sure your road closure is safe
The most important factor in arranging the street party is that everyone in the proposed road is asked for their opinion. This includes all residents and all businesses. A signed petition (Petition to Allow Road Closure [XLS 20kb]) must be produced to the council when requesting a road closure showing that the majority of people in the street support the closure.
Some roads in the city are not able to be closed as doing so can cause problems with rerouting traffic or emergency access. If a road closure is not possible for these reasons we recommend looking at using an alternative local road.
If you have a street pary planned why not look at our food at outdoor events page to help you save money and save waste.
The Brighton__Hove_Street_Party_Application_Form.doc [PDF 70kb] guides you through what you need to do and has additional information at the end of the form.You can also find useful information and templates for signs at www.streetparty.org.uk and government advice can be found on the communities and local government page.
