The Platinum Jubilee celebrations, in honour of Queen Elizabeth II’s 70 years on the throne, will take place from Thursday June 2 through to Sunday, June 5.
Derbyshire district and borough councils have been fielding a surge of applications for road closures so that residents can host traditional street parties, with three weeks to go until the celebrations.
These applications are required so that authorities including bus companies and emergency services know which streets are likely to be blocked or hard to navigate, and that residents avoid potential safety issues, too.
Despite the deadlines for street party road closures having passed by for all of Derbyshire’s councils, applications continue to be filed.
As it stands, there have been 139 approved applications made to Derbyshire councils for road closures for street parties with a number of further applications pending and there are several applications which do not require road closures.
Breaking the road closures down by district, 24 are in Amber Valley, three in Bolsover, 8 in Chesterfield, 43 in Derby, 39 in Erewash, two in North East Derbyshire and eight in South Derbyshire. High Peak Borough Council has not yet detailed how many street party road closure applications it has had.
Residents are required to consult with surrounding neighbours and businesses before they apply for road closures and applications made too late may not be approved.
The borough council has approved 24 street party road closures so far with a further 10 being processed.
The approved closures are:
Campbell Street, Belper Springhill Way, Codnor Lyndale Drive, Codnor New Road, Codnor Park Ella Bank Road and Westfield Avenue, Heanor Bowler Street, Ripley Cinder Bank, Ironville Hillside, Langley Mill Walcote Close, Belper Long Row, Belper Oxhay Gardens, Crich Chevin Road, Milford Meadow Road, Ripley Whitehouse Rise Estate, Belper Hickton Road, Swanwick Church Street, Waingroves Parsons Grove, Denby Middleton Avenue, Codnor Wall Street, Ripley Holbrook View, Kilburn Crich Lane, Ambergate Lathkill Drive/Dovedale Close/Peakdale Close, Marehay Highfield Road, Belper Castle Hill, Duffield
