Get your road closure applications in ahead of Coronation celebrations

Leamington Editorial 8th Mar, 2023   0

RESIDENTS planning a street party for the King’s Coronation are being reminded to get their road closure applications in.

The Coronation of Their Majesties The King and The Queen Consort will take place at Westminster Abbey on Saturday May 6. And groups of neighbours or community organisations are being encouraged by Warwick District Council to organise a celebratory event or gathering over the bank holiday weekend – Saturday May 6 to Monday May 8 – provided the necessary permissions are in place.

Applications to close a road or street should be submitted to WDC by Friday March 24.

WDC’s arts and economy spokesman Coun Liam Bartlett said: “This moment in our history is worthy of a fitting celebration, so it would be great to see residents coming together to share this joyful occasion.”

Meanwhile, in advance of the Coronation, preparations are being made by the town councils in Leamington, Warwick, Kenilworth and Whitnash to live stream the service on large screens, with the times and venues to be published on WDC’s website.
