Street parties for the Royal Wedding this spring are being encouraged by Richmond Council, which is again covering the costs of all road closures in streets where residents would like to organise celebrations.
The Council met the official costs for street parties during the previous royal wedding and Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations. Over 100 events were held.
Now, for the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the Council has agreed to wave the cost of closing roads on the 19th and 20th May and the bank holiday weekend of 26th, 27th and 28th May. This includes the cost of the statutory adverts required to make drivers aware. Neighbours and resident groups will only have to find the cost of hiring ‘road closed’ signage.

The deadline for applications is the 30th April 2018.
