If you would like to close a parish road for a street party, you will need permission from the Connetable. In some cases the parish roads committee and other authorities may be consulted.
Some events need a public entertainment licence from the Bailiff as well as permission from the parish. You may need to apply well in advance for a permit so you should check if you need one as soon as possible.
