Organising an event or street party that requires a road closure

If you are looking to organise an event then please refer to the guidance blow before you make an application:

Street parties

Street parties and fetes are a traditional part of community life. They are a simple way for us to get to know our neighbours and meet members of our community.

Adur District Council and Worthing Borough Council support the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government in the Government's initiative in making it easier to hold street parties and fetes.

If you want to organise a street party please read the guidance below:

Street closures and road closures (for events)

You cannot legally stop vehicles entering or driving down a road unless a 'road closure order' is in place. There is a £106.00 application fee which is refundable if the road closure is not granted.

If you need to apply for the closure of a street or road in Worthing or Adur for an event, please note that the council takes eight weeks to process an application for a street closure and therefore applicants need to plan ahead.

Each application must be supported with the £106.00 fee (made out to Adur District Council) and a street plan showing the road closure.

Public Liability Insurance

The Council recommends that Public Liability Insurance of £5,000,000 is taken out to protect the organiser against their liability for any injury or property damage claims which may arise at the event. This should be arranged by the organiser either through their own insurers, via an insurance broker or by searching for 'street party event insurance' on-line, which will bring up a variety of insurers who can provide suitable cover.

Signage

Arrangements to borrow the necessary signage can be made through Worthing Borough Council from Worthing Town Hall, Chapel Road, Worthing.

Organisers should email:
