You can apply for a temporary road closure if you are holding a street party or special event and want to close the road.

The application process and requirements are different for street parties and for special events.

Your event is a street party if:

  • it's only for neighbours and residents
  • you only publicise it to residents
  • it's taking place in a quiet residential street
  • you are organising it yourself 

Your event is a special event if:

  • it's a parade, procession or public event
  • anyone can attend
  • you widely publicise it, such as in the newspaper or on social media
  • a professional organiser is arranging it 

Objecting to an event

If you want to object to a temporary road closure, you need to email road.closures@chelmsford.gov.uk. We will consider your objection when we make our decision.
