Organising a street party
Get the party started
If you would like to organise a street party you need to get your applications in at least 6 weeks prior to the event. Contact the transportation team to request an application pack.
Helping you plan - Harrow Council has waived road closure fees for one day so residents can get to know their neighbours better by holding a street party or picnic in their road.
The Harrow Community Lunch will take place on Sunday 2 June as part of the national Big Lunch event.
For a guide on organising a street party with your local community see our how to guide for videos and more.
Harrow resident Linette Pooley held a street party for the Royal Wedding. Here she describes her experience and plans for this year.
"The whole process was so much easier than I thought it would be. The council was very helpful and it was literally just one form. We were talking about it recently and we are thinking about holding another one this year for the Diamond Jubilee celebrations. I would recommend it, definitely, it was a lot of fun."
To arrange your party all you need to do is make one simple call to request a no-nonsense form - contact details on the right.
Make sure to start planning early and contact the Council at least four weeks before your event, especially if you think you will want to close the road. This is to ensure that the party takes place in a safe environment and so that the Council can make the necessary safety assessments for each street.
Please note that requests to close roads that are part of a bus route or busy traffic routes will NOT be granted.
