Can you apply for a road closure for Queens jubilee, without informing every resident of the road? 

In our road they have a fb page for residents. Out of approx 67 houses, only about 30+ are in the group.

Are those planning to request a street closure, obliged to tell the non members of the group their intentions.

    I doubt it. Presumably any objections would need to be made to the council after the closure has been applied for (if there is an objections process).

    Probably depends on your council, should have details on their website

    one example includes among other things

    Your Platinum Jubilee street party event must:

    be organised for residents and neighbours only
    not be publicised or advertised to the wider public
    not disrupt local residents with music or other noise.
    not be on a road which needs to be used to access shops or other businesses

    You must:

    • speak to residents who will be affected by the road closure to make sure they haven't got any objections

    If you apply to close the road you have to prove to your council first that you have informed and/or invited all the residents of the road, not just 50% or thereabouts.

    Yes you ARE obliged to tell the non-members of the group of your intentions. At the very least give them an opportunity to accept or decline!

    If you are planning to request road closure and hold a celebration without informing half of the residents, it will not only cause inconvenience and bad feelings but it may also antagonise those who haven't been invited or informed into some kind of retaliatory action. Last thing you want when you are trying to have a good time. 

    It's really just a matter of courtesy. Just think how you'd feel if you were one of the approximately 67 neighbours who were ignored. Not very nice.

    Here's some information that you may find useful.

    Not true. Councils require residents to inform all those affected by any road closure, not just a select few. Everyone has to be informed in advance.

    Have a care for those residents who are not British or Royalists?
