Fifty-one roads to close in Stoke-on-Trent for street parties

Published: Tuesday, 31st May 2022

Fifty-one roads will be closed this week so residents can hold street parties for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

The city council has given permission for the closures so communities can celebrate safely together outside their homes.

Across the city there are roads closed on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday as residents take advantage of the extra Bank Holiday to mark the Queen’s 70 years as monarch.

Councillor Faisal Hussain, Lord Mayor of Stoke-on-Trent, said: “It’s fantastic that so many residents are holding traditional street parties to celebrate this special occasion.

“Throughout the long bank holiday weekend there are events taking place across the city.  The city will be alive with smiling faces and laughter. Visit the Platinum Jubilee events page on our website to see what’s happening and when.

“The last couple of years have seen our city pull together like never before to support each other. Let’s use this special weekend to show how Stoke-on-Trent celebrates together. Finally, I would Iike to send our best wishes and warmest congratulations to the Queen.”

Cllr Abi Brown, leader of Stoke-on-Trent City Council, said: “ We love seeing communities come together so made it as easy as possible for residents to apply for a road closure. 

“Of course, lots of communities don’t need a road closure and will be having fun in their gardens or other community spaces.

“Wherever you are celebrating please enjoy yourselves, be considerate of others, and stay safe.

“This is the perfect occasion to show pride in our city and come together in your communities with friends, family and neighbours.”
