Events on a Highway

Events on a highway

When planning your event you might consider holding it on the public highway. It is important we talk to you to check your requirements a minimum of 4 months in advance. We will need to discuss with you:

  • how people will know the road is closed
  • access for emergency vehicles
  • if part of a bus route, how we need to plan for this 

We also advise you to discuss your plans with local businesses as this may also affect them.

Specific information and guidance including timescales and costs will be sent to you, once you have submitted your initial enquiry form. You can also download our event planning on a highway checklist to assist you during your event organising.
