Apply to close a road
Applying for a road closure for street works
For works to be carried out safely on or near the highway you may require a road or footpath closure, parking restriction or similar. If so, you must apply for a Temporary Traffic Regulation Order.
There are conditions and fees attached to applying.
Please email email@example.com if you'd like to discuss the road closure before you apply.
Road closures for street parties and community events
Small residential street parties
We've compiled some guidance notes explaining the conditions of holding a street party. There is no fee for the temporary traffic order to close the road. If your street party is approved, you will need insurance indemnity. We have a risk assessment form to help you think about potential hazards and risks at your event.
You must sign the road closure with standard 'road closed' signs. We have a limited number of signs available for hire. Hire costs can vary, with a refundable deposit per sign. We explain how to hire our signs if your application is approved. You also need to provide suitable high visibility barriers alongside the 'road closed' sign.
Large community events and parades
You must submit both an events application form and a road closure application.
The routes available for parades are restricted in the town centre, and only the approved routes will be considered.
All conditions of the road closure application must be met. There is an event-specific fee associated with your application and you may also incur traffic management costs depending on your event.
