Apply for a street party permit

A street party is a fantastic way to meet and get to know your neighbours, as well as have some good old fashioned fun!

Street parties are:

  • small in scale (less than 150 people)
  • bring together people from a specific street/neighbourhood
  • non-commercial or not for profit (including fundraising)
  • held in minor streets which have low traffic flow.
