Coronation street party fees waived

Road closure fees have been waived by Dudley Council for people wanting to host street parties to celebrate the coronation of King Charles III.

The King will be officially crowned at Westminster Abbey on May 6 and there will be an official bank holiday on Monday May 8.

Applications have already come in from residents wanting to hold street parties.

Normally, fees can run into hundreds of pounds but Dudley Council has taken the decision to waive the usual fees to encourage people to celebrate.

The deadline for applications is March 10. Councillor Shaz Saleem, cabinet member for highways and public realm, said:

“This is such a special, historic moment that it is only right that people will want to celebrate. We have tried to do everything we can to help with that by stopping the usual fees we would charge if that application is for a street party.

“At this early stage we have already had three applications but there’s not a lot of time for people to request a road closures for us to process it.”

There is a limited number of party packs with lots of goodies for people to use at their event. They will be given out to the first people who ask, one per street party.

People can request a street closure online at or by calling 0300 555 2345.
