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 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.
