Events on the highway
If you want to hold an event on the highway, you need to apply for a road restriction.
'The highway' means a road or street, verge, footway or pavement, public footpath, bridleway, restricted byway or byway open to all traffic.
Apply for a road restriction for an event
We define events according to their size:
- a special event on or adjacent to the road - an event hosted for a large number of people, as high-profile as a carnival or street fair. Road closures for services of Remembrance during November should also follow this application
- a street party - a small, local community event attended by local residents and their families and which isn't advertised to the wider community
