Streets Alive's work supported by the Government in building community spirit
The Department of Communities and Local Government has today issued guidance for councils on street parties which was prepared with Streets Alive
The work by Streets Alive in building community spirit at the street level through street parties has been added weight by the Government.
They have added guidance on their website encouraging councils to simplify their procedures. The site is
here. More detail is here.
The Guidance recognises that such events are resident organised and funded and should not normally require road closure charges, insurance or licences.
Streets Alive can advise councils on applying the Guidance and can train community workers and residents in developing an ambitious programme of street parties.
We have recently assisted Southampton, Bristol, Portsmouth and councils across the UK.
