Do you fancy holding a street party to mark the royal wedding?

STREET parties being planned in Hucknall to mark the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton should be registered with Notts County Council.

The couple will tie the knot at Westminster Abbey on Friday April 29, which has been made a national Bank Holiday.

Local residents have until Thursday March 31 to notify the county council if they plan to host an open-air celebration. Coun Richard Jackson (Con), the county council’s lead member for transport and highways, said: “We fully understand that residents might want to hold street parties to mark the royal event, so we wanted to give them as much reasonable time as possible to let us know.

“This gives us an opportunity to ensure that the roads and footpaths will be adequate to host a street party and that the necessary traffic signs and diversion routes will be in place.

“We will be working with our neighbouring councils and other organisations, such as the police, fire service and local hospitals, to make celebrations are as stress-free as possible.”

Residents interested in holding a street party can register online at or ring the highways area office on 01623 520739.
