Britain celebrated the Queen Platinum anniversary of the four days of celebrations last weekend. It is estimated that about 15 million people attended public events dedicated to this the queenan unprecedented 70 years of rule.

To hold a street party, communities had to formally apply for road closures, but neighbors could hold a party on private land without permission.

A source in the government told The Daily Telegraph last week: “People cannot close roads unilaterally, the council needs to be warned in about six weeks.

“If people can’t close the road because they left it too late, they can schedule a ‘street meeting’ that will keep the road open, but can be arranged on private land.”

Some local authorities have issued warnings to residents against the placement of street decorations, while other councils, including Rochford Essex District Council, Portsmouth City Council, Bournemouth, Christchurch and Pula Council, have actually banned hanging oatmeal on lampposts and telegraphs.

One of the Conservative MPs, Richard Holden, called on the councils to stop preventing the anniversary celebrations and said:

“The idea that big bureaucrats are tying people up to prevent these holidays is despising.

“Councils should immediately clear the way for these historic national holidays to take place so that friends and families can celebrate together this weekend.”
