Information and guidance for councils

Councils can play a small but important role in making the task of organising street parties easy for residents. This is important to help neighbours meet and for community development.

This Guide applies to simple street parties organised by residents in a single residential street without external publicity. Larger public events in more streets require other arrangements.


With the new Licensing Act Streets Alive has developed special guidance on its relevance to street parties. We think that in most cases street parties should not need to apply for a license.

Streets Alive offers training and consultancy services to Councils
