Street parties & events
If you are thinking of organising a street party, carnival, procession, or any other Community event on the road, you need to apply to Tandridge District Council for a Road Closure Order, as soon as possible. You can read the guidance notes and complete a copy of the application form by clicking on the link above.
If you are organising a sporting event or other more substantive social event on the highway you will need to apply to Surrey County Council for a road closure under Section 16A of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984. Surrey events on the highways
If your street is used by through traffic you will need to send the council a traffic plan. This must show how much of the road is to be closed and an alternative route for traffic. The Council will liaise with the Police and the Highway Authority on your behalf. There is no charge for this, but we need at least 21 days notice of any event.
The organisers should also have considered the risks posed by staging an event and have taken out any necessary Public Liability Insurance. Further guidance is available in the Home Office guide via the following link Event Safety
If you are granted permission to close the road you will need to put up appropriate signs to inform road users. The Council does not have road signs that you can borrow and recommends you hire signs from a local hire centre.
To add the event to our e-newsletter you just need to add your event to our website – just fill in this form http://www.tandridge.gov.uk/leisure/Events/submitevent.htm. The details will get sent to our e-mail subscribers and twitter account.
Temporary event notice
You don’t need a licence for food, alcohol or entertainment unless you’re planning to charge or open your event to the general public, in which case you may need a Temporary Event Notice.
Anyone planning an event on land owned or managed by Tandridge should contact the Council for the necessary paperwork and also to ensure that the site isn't double booked.
