Temporary road closures
If you want to plan a street party, fete or parade in the district there are a few steps you need to take.
Please note that the deadline for applications for Platinum Jubilee street parties has now passed – You can find a list of confirmed street closures at the bottom of this page. Our team is still processing some applications, when they have been approved they will be added to the list.
Temporary road closure for your event
First of of all, you will need to apply for a temporary road closure. Please note that we do not charge a fee for applications.
There are different application forms and guidance depending on the type of event being planned.
For any Platinum Jubilee celebrations please download the Street Party form below:
Risk Assessment for your event
You will need to carry out a risk assessment. If you don’t have a risk assessment form, you can download and complete our template. Please do contact us if you need any help.
What do I do if I want to sell food or alcohol and have live music?
If you’d like to include musical entertainment or the sale of food or drink at your event your will need a separate approval and licence, there’s more information on our temporary event notice page.
Once you’ve completed the application form and have read all the conditions and the necessary paperwork, please send by email or post it to the contact details below.
How much notice do I need to give?
We must receive your application form and associated documents at least 28 days before the date of the planned event. It may not be possible to process late applications.
If you know you’re going to hold an event later in the year you can submit your application earlier than the deadline – you don’t have to wait until nearer the time!
Please note that the deadline for applications for Platinum Jubilee street parties has now passed.
What happens when we receive your application form?
We will acknowledge your application request when we’ve received it and start a consultation with other organisations such as Thames Valley Police and Oxfordshire County Council.
Once the consultation period has finished (and there are no objections) we will be able to make the legal order to allow your temporary road closure and will send you a copy. We will also add it onto this page.
If any objections are made, we will contact the person named on the application form, so that any issues are discussed and hopefully resolved.
