Sneaky loophole so you can host unregistered Platinum Jubilee party at your street

THIS sneaky loophole will let you have your Jubilee cake AND eat it with neighbours on your street – even if you haven’t applied for a proper party.

Unregistered street dos are against the law and anyone closing off their road for a knees-up must obtain a Street Party Road Closure Order.

Official events must only feature “simple tables and chairs”, with no live music or other performances.

But risk-taking royalists who failed to book their Platinum Jubilee bash in advance will be relieved to hear there is a way around the rules.

According to the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, the best way to gather legally with next door is to host a “street meet”.

This involves meeting in someone’s garden or private land – and does involve closing off the whole road.

A spokesperson for the DLUHC said: “We want celebrations marking the Queen’s historic 70-year reign to be the biggest and best, and for as many people as possible across the nation to get involved.

“Councils should accommodate short notice requests where reasonably possible, but if residents are not able to close their road they can plan a simpler ‘Street Meet’.

“This can keep the road open and be organised on private land, such as a driveway or front garden, without any requirement to fill in council forms.”

Fifteen million people plan to toast the monarch over the four-day Bank Holiday.

But only 16,000 official street party applications have been approved.

Officials have refused to say, however, whether Brits holding gatherings to celebrate the Queen’s 70-year reign without permission will face any consequences at all.

It is an offence to obstruct any public right of passage – which includes roads, pavements and thoroughfares.

But action will likely only be taken for parties of more than 500 people, or where alcohol is being sold.

Even then, celebrations will likely still be allowed to continue, without the risk of fines or any other punishment.

We shouldn’t let killjoys spoil the Jubilee.

Several police forces also refused to confirm whether action will be taken against those who host or attend parties without council permission.

LGA Chairman Cllr James Jamieson, chairman of the Local Government Association, said: “Councils are pulling out all the stops to help their communities celebrate a historic day for our country, whether it be approving thousands of local road closures for free or putting on big community events of their own.

“A huge number of applications for street parties have been received, and councils need to balance supporting as many residents as possible while ensuring events that do take place are set up and run safely.

“With the day fast-approaching, anyone who has yet to submit their application should contact their council as soon as possible.”

The lack of punishment will be a huge sigh of relief for many Brits who have already faced red tape from killjoy councils.

Officials in Rochford, Essex, declared bunting should be torn down to avoid bin collection chaos, while Portsmouth City Council banned the hanging flags amid speculation it is too heavy for lampposts.

Neighbourhoods were urged to book their party well in advance, but many have urged councils to show “a little bit of flexibility” when it comes to celebrating Her Majesty’s record reign.

I would just say to the councils to show a little bit of flexibility, show a little bit of willingness to accommodate people.

Asked on Sky News about unauthorised Platinum Jubilee celebrations, Chris Philp said: “I think it is fantastic we are celebrating the Queen’s Jubilee, and I would just say to local councils around the country, including mine in Croydon, if you do get a late application, and maybe the deadline has technically passed, I would just say to the councils to show a little bit of flexibility, show a little bit of willingness to accommodate people.

“And if you are at all able to, you know, please do grant these requests, even if they are maybe technically after the deadline.”

His words echoed those of Conservative MP Johnny Mercer, who last night said: “These street parties should be allowed to go ahead.

“We shouldn’t let killjoys spoil the Jubilee.”

Meanwhile, officers from the Metropolitan Police have urged caution.

Assistant Commissioner Louisa Rolfe said: “We want to ensure Londoners and visitors to the capital enjoy the Bank Holiday weekend knowing the Met is here.

“We ask the public to remain vigilant and report any suspicious behaviour to police officers who have also been working with local event and street party organisers to help them plan safe and secure events in their neighbourhoods.”

The Jubilee celebrations begin on Thursday with Trooping the Colour – the Queen’s annual birthday parade.

She and other members of the Royal Family will gather on the balcony at Buckingham Palace to watch a flypast by the Royal Air Force.

The following three days will be filled with other royal events, including a service of thanksgiving, a party at the Palace, and the Big Jubilee Lunch.

An ICM poll revealed 14.7m people are planning to join the festivities over the four-day break – almost double the number who participated in the Diamond Jubilee in 2012.
