Road closure fees for Jubilee street parties to be waived

Road closure fees for street parties celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee will be waived, council bosses have confirmed.

Residents have the opportunity to take part in the Big Jubilee Lunch, which will be happening across the extended bank holiday weekend in June.

To celebrate, people could have a picnic in the park, host a party in a community centre or a street party with their neighbours. People need to call Dudley Council Plus on 0300 555 2345 to request a road closure for a street party. The last date for applications to be approved is Friday May 13.

Other events to mark this historic milestone include a tea party on 25 May, the lighting of a beacon at Dudley Castle on June 2 and the planting of a host of trees across the borough as part of the Queen’s Green Canopy. Councillor Karen Shakespeare, cabinet member for public realm, said:

"This is the first time people have been able to celebrate the platinum jubilee of a reigning British monarch. This is a moment in history, which we want to help people to celebrate in the best way they can and be able to remember for many years to come.

"I’m so pleased we are able to waive the road closure fee for our residents which will help them to be able to hold street parties and I’d urge people to get in touch if they’re planning to host one to make sure they don’t miss out. "

Peter Dobb, local councillor for the Belle Vale ward, added: "I am delighted at the news that Dudley Council will be taking on board my suggestion of waiving road closure fees for residents to Jubilee Street Parties.

"This is a simple and easy way to help residents in my ward of Belle Vale, and across Dudley Borough, to come together to celebrate this monumental milestone, and get together after an increasingly difficult few years."
