Residents who are planning a party for the Queen’s Jubilee can celebrate with free road closure applications as Redditch Borough Council has agreed to waive the £75 fee.

With the Commonwealth Games also in the diary for this year the Council will be publicising the measures people need to put in place to ensure their party goes with a swing.

These include road closures, which although are free, still need to be applied for, and details about temporary events and licenses too.

Cllr Joanne Beecham, whose portfolio covers Leisure, also wants the Borough’s party people to take advantage of the Council’s open spaces to hold events.

She said: “Redditch is renowned for its community spirit and with such a momentous year ahead of us this is the perfect time for us all to come together and celebrate.

“The Borough also boasts amazing green and open spaces, not least our parks, and whether it’s a street party or a larger public event, we want to offer support to help residents to make these a reality.”

The free road closure applications only apply to events which are associated with the Jubilee.

Council Leader Matt Dormer added: “We want as many people as possible to come together to celebrate these milestones, especially after the restrictions of the last two years and we hope that waiving the road closure fees will encourage more people to join in the fun.
