Diamond JubileeThe following Press Release has been received by LOSRA:

Surrey’s leaders have vowed they will do all they can to help people throw street parties to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

Leader of Spelthorne Borough Council, Cllr Vivienne Leighton said: “There is going to be a real buzz of excitement around the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and I’m sure many Spelthorne residents will be planning to celebrate this historic event. We are committed to making it easy for residents to hold street parties and can offer support and advice to help ensure things go smoothly. Visit our website at www.spelthorne.gov.uk/streetparties or contact us on 01784 451499.

Surrey County Council Leader, David Hodge said: “There were more than 200 street parties in Surrey for last year’s Royal wedding and we want people to come together again and show the sense of community spirit that makes the County such a wonderful place to live.

“I can’t think of a better way to mark 60 years of the Queen’s reign than spending the day celebrating with neighbours or friends and I have asked our highways teams go out of their way to help make this happen.

“To help people turn party plans into reality we’ve made it simpler and quicker to apply for a road closure but of course there will be some cases where the potential effect on the emergency services means we have to ensure safety is not compromised.”

Applications for parties can be made to district and borough councils, who make the final decision. Surrey County Council is consulted on road closures. For more details visit www.surreycc.gov.uk/diamondjubilee.
