More than 100 applications have been received for street party permits and road closures to celebrate The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee – with the deadline closing on 5 May.
There is less than one week left for residents to apply to Southend-on-Sea City Council for their street party permit and road closure ahead of the long four-day bank holiday weekend celebration.
All applications for a Platinum Jubilee street party and road closure must be received by Friday 5 May. When filing out your application, please ensure that all necessary details have been entered to ensure that the application is valid.
Tandra Forster, executive director for adults and communities, said: “I think it’s wonderful that over the four-day bank holiday weekend, with so many communities will be gathering to celebrate this historic event.
“Street parties are a great opportunity for people to come together on special occasions, and as our Queen celebrates 70 years on the throne, I am pleased that the council is taking the initiative to make sure neighbourhoods celebrate in the best and safest way possible.
“I would urge anyone thinking of holding a street party to visit our website or get in touch for help and assistance, sooner rather than later.”
A full list of road closures will be published ahead of the weekend so residents who are planning to travel over that weekend can plan their route in advance.
