Temporary road closures for street parties

If you are planning to hold a street party and wish to use the public highway it will be necessary to officially close the road. To do this, you need to apply for a Temporary Road Closure Order.

There is no charge or insurance requirement if the road closure is for a street party.

A Temporary Road Closure Order is required for any event which may stop the flow of traffic on the public highway within the Horsham District.

Jubilee street parties: If you are planning a street party over the Jubilee weekend (June 2-6), you must submit your application by 11.59pm on Friday 15 April.

Applications received after Friday 15 April for street parties over the Jubilee weekend will not be accepted.
