Closing a road for more than five minutes without permission is illegal and you can be fined.
Temporary road closures
This is approval given for a road to be closed to vehicles and/or pedestrians at a certain place and point in time. It means you can hold your event to the standards required by law, and that we can create a traffic management plan so that everything runs smoothly. Gaining approval also means you won’t be fined, as closing a road unannounced is illegal.
Applying for a temporary road closure permit
You’ll need to:
- Let us know in writing at least three to six months before the event. This gives us time to consult with and gain approval from everyone involved, as well as advertise the closure publicly for any objections.
- Contact a Traffic Management company to submit your plan once you've been given approval: they’re listed under traffic management equipment/services in the Yellow Pages. We'll work with them to make sure your event is safe and will be run with minimal disruption.
