 From the Communications Officer at Suffolk County Council:

"As you will be aware, this year marks Her Majesty the Queens Platinum Jubilee, after 70 years of service.

To celebrate, events will be taking place across the Country, particularly over the four-day Bank Holiday weekend, between 2nd and 5th June 2022. This bank holiday gives communities and people throughout the UK the opportunity to come together and celebrate with their neighbours.

On Sunday 5 June 2022, fees will be waived for street parties and other local authority led public events in celebration of the Platinum Jubilee.

If you are looking to organise a street party as a group of residents, you can view more information here https://www.suffolk.gov.uk/PlatinumJubileeEvent

All applications must be received before 11pm on Sunday 27 March 2022.

For full details, including street party event criteria, information on insurance and licences, please ensure you visit the above link.

As part of the main criteria for a road to be closed, is that it must be a residential road with no through traffic (i.e. a cul-de-sac or traffic not able to access another road from the event road, etc.) and only resident traffic will be affected.

Application for Traffic Management – If you request traffic management equipment within your application (5 traffic cones, 1 road closure sign and an advance warning sign), please be advised that this may be delivered to your chosen drop off point, up to Thursday 2nd June 2022.  

Any applications received beyond the deadline may be processed. However, Suffolk County Council cannot cover the costs of Traffic Management for the event, nor will Suffolk County Council be able to provide any form of Traffic Management equipment due to possible supply chain constraints and other operational demands.

If you have any queries, please contact Suffolk County Councils Customer Services team on 0345 606 6171 or email customer.services@suffolk.gov.uk
