Guidelines

The following document has been drawn up when considering requests for street closures:-

1. At least 75% of householders affected should be in favour of the proposal. The initiator of the request is to be responsible for collecting signatures on the form attached. The circulation of this form will have the effect of notifying residents of the proposal and providing those not in favour with an opportunity to register their objections.

2. The road to be closed should not be:-
• a classified road (If you are unsure if the road is classified or on a bus route please email highwaylicenses@nelincs.gov.uk)
• a bus route

3. The road should preferably be a cul-de-sac.

4. You are responsible for the erection, maintenance and removal of all necessary road closure and diversion signs and you should be aware that the road must remain open for pedestrians and access to frontages. Signs need to be in accordance with the Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions 2002.

5. Access for emergency vehicles must be maintained at all times.

6. At least 6 weeks notice must be given of any proposal to allow the Highway Authority to circulate to Police, Emergency Services etc, for observations.

7. You must pay to the Council the full costs of any damage to the highway or street furniture or other loss or damage suffered by it and of any claims made against it as a result of the making of the Order and which arise from your negligence or (if you represent an organisation) the negligence of your organisation's members or officers.

8. You agree to clean the street, if appropriate, in order to return it to its condition prior to the closure.

9. In certain circumstances a charge maybe applied. You will be contacted prior to approval if this is the case.

Powers to close the streets are available under the Road Traffic Regulation Act Section 16a. Approval will not be granted for closures required for commercial enterprises. These will require a formal road closure for which a fee may be payable.

If you require any further information or advice, please contact the traffic team by telephone on 01472 326290, by email to traffic@nelincs.gov.uk or by post to the address below.
