Set to be a huge nationwide celebration, BCP Council has already received over 250 applications for temporary road closures for street parties during the Jubilee

Cllr Beverley Dunlop, who holds BCP Council’s portfolio for culture and vibrant places, said: "I’m delighted that more than 250 street parties are already being planned across the BCP area to mark this historic occasion. Let’s make it 300!"

Guidance is available on at www.bcp.gov.uk for anyone who is thinking about planning a street party but unsure how to go about it.

A BCP Council spokesperson added: "Although the deadline is fast approaching, there is still time to apply to close a road and come together with neighbours to celebrate. It’s easy to apply via our website and this will be free of charge for the Platinum Jubilee Big Lunch.

"Please note that all applications to close your road for a street party must be received by 22nd April 2022 at the very latest. Any application received after this date will not be processed. Don’t forget bus routes cannot be considered for closure!"

As reported in the A&T, New Forest District Council has said documents must be submitted six weeks before events within its catchment area.
