Deadline for King’s Coronation street party applications

Deadline for King’s Coronation street party applications

East Riding residents wanting to hold a street party for His Majesty The King’s Coronation don’t have long in which to apply for a road closure.

East Riding of Yorkshire Council needs to have any applications for Coronation events being held on streets, roads or highway land which require the road closing to traffic by Friday 14 April 2023.

This doesn’t apply to events being held on private land.

The King’s Coronation will be held on Saturday 6 May during a weekend of special events.

For The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in June last year, the council received 61 applications for street parties.

Carl Skelton, acting director of streetscene services at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “We’ve already had a number of applications from residents wanting to hold Coronation events, more so in recent weeks, so we know communities really want to get into the spirit.

“We just don’t want people to leave it too late, so please apply as soon as you can.”
