Richmondshire District Council

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
  • Illuminations
  • Processions
  • 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 jeremy.brown@northyorkshire.pnn.police.uk 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.
