ROAD closure fees have been waived for street parties to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
Hastings Borough Council has announced party planners will not have to pay the usual £75 charge as long as applications are in by May 4.
Councillor Phil Scott, lead member for highways, said: “Traditionally, communities have held street parties for events such as this and we want to encourage, rather than hinder, these community get-togethers. It’s a great excuse for a party and to enjoy the extra bank holiday. I would urge groups planning a street party to contact us as soon as possible. Applications made after May 4 will have to pay the fee and risk not receiving permission at all.”
