Application for a road closure form

If you are thinking of organising a street party, carnival, procession, or any other community event on the road, you need to apply for a Road Closure Order, as soon as possible.

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. We will liaise with the police and Surrey County Council 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.

If you are granted permission to close the road, you will need to put up appropriate signs to let road users know. We are not able to lend you road signs.

If you are organising a sporting event or a larger social event on the road you will need to apply to Surrey County Council for a road closure.

Don’t forget to add your event to our website

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 us should contact us for the necessary paperwork and also to ensure the site isn't double booked.
