If your event falls into the following categories, you should contact North Yorkshire County Council to apply for a temporary road closure:
- Local carnivals and fairs
- Street parties and fetes
- Acts of worship
- National celebrations
- Short charity runs/walks
If you're organising a military or Remembrance service you should return this form to us.
You can apply for a:
- Full road closure: Road closed for a substantial period time which requires a signed diversion route
- Rolling closure: This allows a moving procession to pass but only interrupts traffic for a short period
- Footpath closure: Only necessary if the event obstructs a footpath
We need ten weeks' notice to allow consultation with emergency services, the county council and bus companies, among others.
You should also contact the police by emailing email@example.com and you may need a £21 temporary event notice, a kind of licence, if you're having a bar, providing entertainment or charging to raise money
We strongly recommend that event organisers obtain sufficient public liability insurance for the event.
