Mayor urges locals to start street party plans

People are being urged to celebrate the coronation of King Charles III and hold street parties across Dudley borough.

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

So far, 28 applications have been submitted to Dudley Council from residents. The council has waived its usual fees for road closures to help people celebrate.

The deadline for applications is March 10. Councillor Sue Greenaway, Mayor of Dudley, said:

“This is such a historic moment and I hope people will come together to celebrate. We have very strong royal connections in the borough and I am sure people feel strongly about marking such a special occasion.

”With the council waiving its usual fees, I hope it will encourage even more people to come forward.”

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.

There is also information online for people wanting to screen the coronation to large groups of people without needing an extra licence.
