Road closures for approved events

Road Closed Road SignWorcester City Council may grant Temporary Road Closure Orders under the authority of Section 21 of The Town Police Clause Act 1847 for events across the city for a variety of reasons, such as Civil Events like the annual Remembrance Day Parade, larger organised events such as  The Annual Worcester Motor Show held each year on the High Street.

These temporary road closures may also be granted for smaller more private events, such as organised street parties or one off celebrations to mark a special event that is restricted to residents or a private event.

Each individual application will be considered on its own merits and Worcester City Council cannot guarantee that any particular application will be granted.

Applicants will be required to consider the impact on local traffic and provide a map detailing suggested diversion routes allowing traffic and pedestrians to pass without entering the streets included in the Road Closure.
