ROAD CLOSURES for the Queens Diamond Jubilee – (Street Parties)

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

It is the Councils intention to make a Temporary Road Closure Order under section 21of the Town Police Clauses Act 1847 to enable various roads within the Milton Keynes area to be temporarily closed whilst residents of Milton Keynes hold street parties to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

If you wish to hold a street party in your road, please note that you will need to make your application to the Council to request the temporary closure of your road for this event by 1st May 2012.

Failure to inform the Council by this date may result in your application being refused. Please bear in mind when planning your street party that the temporary closure of a road may impact upon the services of the police, ambulance, military and fire services, who would need to be able to gain access through the road quickly, should an emergency occur.

The information you will be asked to provide when making your application
includes the following:-

  • Name of the road(s) for which you are making an application for a
    temporary road closure
  • Postal address of the road(s)
  • Date on which the temporary closure is required
  • Times (from and to) the temporary closure is to be in effect

  1. The problem with street parties is you never know who is going to go and how many people are going to turn up. So how are going to know weather the whole street needs closing or just a section of it?
