Temporary Footpath and Road Closures

Tips for applying

Before you apply, we strongly advise that you:

  1. Plan to apply for the closure early in your event planning process, as we cannot guarantee we will approve it
  2. Tell the police about your plans before you come to us. As we will consult them on your application, if you speak to them first you can make any necessary changes to reduce the risk that they will object to your plans later
  3. Undertake adequate risk assessments
  4. Take out suitable public liability cover.

National Guidelines on safe events can be found at here
