April 14 deadline to notify Nottinghamshire County Council of your Coronation Street Party

You need to advise Nottinghamshire County Council if you are having a street party


Although you don’t require a licence to host a street party for the Coronation weekend, or as part of the Coronation Big Lunches you do need to advise Nottinghamshire County Council.

Nottinghamshire County Council (NCC), in partnership with Via, will be charging no fees and will supply a set of signs for a ‘standard’ road closure free of charge

The council advise that while they will do all they can to support the events, it is not always possible to close a road where access requirements need to be maintained, although they will discuss alternatives

The Coronation of His Majesty The King and Her Majesty The Queen Consort is also a time for celebration across the nation and the Commonwealth, over a weekend of special events:
