Street Parties

The Coronation of King Charles III and his wife, Camilla, as King and Queen of the United Kingdom is set to take place on Saturday, 6 May 2023.

A bank holiday across the United Kingdom has been announced in honour of the Coronation of His Majesty King Charles III, falling on Monday 8 May 2023.

As demonstrated by the Platinum Jubilee celebrations, street parties are a great way to celebrate historical events and get to know your neighbours, generating community spirit and neighbourhood fun. Hopefully the Council, with the help of residents, will build upon the success of the 2022 Platinum Jubilee celebrations.  

You can now apply to host a street party to enjoy this momentous occasion in style with your loved ones and neighbours. You can apply to host a street party on any day of the special bank holiday weekend.

The Council will again relax many of the usual rules and will not charge residents for road closures to celebrate this special occasion. Further details will feature on the Council's website as plans develop.

Waste and recycling

The events should be waste-free and any generated waste should be disposed of in residents' bins.

Any sacks of waste left on the street will be considered fly-tipping, even if this is near a litter bin.

Please ensure that at the end of the party, everyone helps to clear up any litter on the ground.

The Council will not arrange additional collections of waste generated by street parties, so please ensure any waste/litter you generate can be accommodated in your bins or taken by residents to one of our reuse and recycling centres.
