How to hold a street party for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee

Thinking of holding a street party on Sunday 5 June 2022 to make the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee?

Kent County Council have produced an application form for organisers in each road to complete

Application for Street Parties for Queen’s Jubilee

This type of Road Closure ONLY applies to following type of event:

  • For residents/neighbours only
  • Small cul-de-sac and quiet estate roads
  • No selling is involved

They do request that a risk assessment is included with the application along with confirmation that you have consulted with the residents who will be affected by the road closures.

If  you think that the road that you would like to close does not meet this criteria then contact TWBC by emailing Sophie Marsh using the email address below who can advise you.

Public Liability Insurance is not a requirement for this type of road closure.

You will see that there is a useful link included providing advice on holding a street party which has a lot of useful information.

The deadline for ALL applications is 31st March 2022, any applications received after this date will not be processed.

Completed application and risk assessment need to be sent to the following email address:



As part of your application, Kent County Council will supply a single ‘Road Closed’ sign for closures of no-through roads and two ‘Road Closed’ signs for through roads. These can be collected from Aylesford Highways Depot by prior appointment, details will be provided for this on the approval email.


We would also ask if organisers could initially register the event on Tunbridge Wells Borough Council’s  Event App which can be found on the TWBC website, if you type ‘Events’ in the search bar then click on Events Tool kit and the bottom of the page is a green box that you click on to register a new event, please fill in the initial information requested, there is no need to complete the Event Management Plan.
