Roads that are suitable for street parties
Not all roads will be suitable to close for street parties or play street session. Roads that will be
suitable will be local roads, cul-de-sacs and residential roads.
However some roads will not be possible to close due to emergency access requirements, such as:
A roads: eg Newmarket Road. B roads: eg Earlham Road. Local distributor roads: eg Rosary Road.
Costs and payment
The cost of the application for the road closure will be £37.64. This needs to be paid at the
time of your application, by cheque or over the phone by credit or debit card – telephone

The application cannot be considered or processed until payment has been made.
There may be extra costs associated with insurance, signage and barriers. See below.
We advise applicants to consider having public liability insurance to give organisers extra
peace of mind should an unforeseen or unfortunate incident occur during the event.
Road closure signs
It will be your responsibility to ensure that you provide road closure signs, barriers and possibly
diversion signs for your event. You can contact the highways team (as shown on page 1) for
advice on what will be required and the need, if any, for a trafﬁc management plan.
The Streets Alive website has recommendations about low cost signage for your street party.
They provide the template and dimensions required and suggest where you can purchase
them as banners, or how to make them from paper and cardboard.

You will also be required to put a notice up in your street to say the road will be closed.
