Street party guidance

Street parties involve groups of residents getting together to arrange a party for their neighbours and is different to larger events that are open to anyone to attend.

Organising small, private street parties is very simple and generally does not include activities that need a licence, such as selling alcohol or providing certain types of entertainment. The number one tip for holding a street party is to plan early, think about what you want to achieve and how you will arrange everything. You should make sure that all property and land owners likely to be affected are informed about the intention to have a street party, giving details of times, format and so on, so that all residents receive advance notice and so that you are aware of any objections to it.

Your street party should have a named person in charge (the "Event Organiser"), who must be present throughout the event and easily identifiable.

You then need to notify the Council about your plans and any possible road closures as these will require consideration by the Council. Please complete a street party notification form204.9KB and return it to the Council.
