Are you thinking of holding an event or street party for the D Day 80th Anniversary

In 2024, the UK will commemorate the 80th anniversary of the Normandy Landings.

The D-Day Normandy Landings of 6 June 1944 were the largest seaborne invasion in history and marked the beginning of the liberation of France and Western Europe.

There will be celebrations marking the D-Day 80th anniversary with events in the UK and in Normandy on 6 June 2024, as well as with community events around the UK.

Holding an event or planning a street party

You will need to apply to Leicestershire County Council to close your street/road to traffic by completing sections 3 and 4 of the D-Day 80th anniversary application pack.

All fees associated with the legal application have been waived for the D-Day 80th anniversary and the application time reduced to 7 weeks.
Please note: this is only for the D-Day 80th anniversary and doesn’t apply to other events.

If you wish to apply for a road closure or any other restrictions, the last date for submission is Friday 12 April 2024. Applications after this date may not be able to be fulfilled.

Given the occasion and following government guidance, we won’t be asking for the usual required documentation for a road closure, such as an in-depth risk assessment, however consideration still needs to be given to ensure the safety of all attendees and an enjoyable event. Within the registration form you will find some additional information for you to consider. Find further government advice on road closures for street parties(Link is external and opens in new window)

The information you supply to us regarding your event will be shared with the emergency services, so they can put their own plans and resources in place. Please submit your application form in good time – it is better to submit draft plans than nothing at all. It is essential that the emergency services are kept well informed of the events, and we would rather know something is happening well in advance than finding out the day before.

Borrowing signs and cones

We are offering the loan of signs and cones. Should you require these, please complete section 5 of the D-Day 80th anniversary application pack.

Please note: signs and cones must be collected from and returned to the LCC Mountsorrel Highways Depot. Appropriate arrangements will need to be made for collection.

The deadline for your cones and signs applications is Friday 12 April 2024, after this date we cannot guarantee availability. The fees for the loan of signs will be waived for all D-Day 80th anniversary events but equipment must be returned, or it will be invoiced for.

Council owned land and licences

If you would like to organise an event on council land or a greenspace, or to find out about licensable activities such as selling food and drink or having music on a stage, please find the licensable activities details for your borough or district

Electric Car Club – Survey

Would you like to see the creation of an Electric Car Club in East Goscote?

The Parish Council is considering establishing an electric car club in conjunction with Green Fox Community Energy Co-operative, a local not-for-profit organisation who have secured funding to develop four electric car clubs in Leicestershire.

An electric car club allows users to access an electric vehicle without owning one and can offer a flexible, cost-effective alternative to private car ownership or leasing.

Initially we think this could be very beneficial to our community; as it would reduce emissions, assist people who don’t own a car, help with reduced public transport, and help tackle the cost-of-living crisis. As part of the project, fast charging points would be installed in our village.

How does it work?

Residents pay a monthly membership fee and an hourly rate to hire a car. A member books the car, picks it up from a dedicated parking bay, drives it and returns it to the start location at the end of their hire.

What’s next?

At this early stage we need to discover if residents would be interested in using an electric car club, so the Parish Council would like to gather feedback through a resident’s survey. Ideally, we would like as many people as possible to complete the survey, as the larger the response, the more representative the sample. Please use the link to access this: Residents Electric Car Club – Google Forms

Should you require a paper copy please contact the parish office.

 In order to for this project to run effectively the Council would also need the support of a group of residents interested in helping set this up. If this is something you would be interested in, then please get in touch with the parish office on 0116 260 2202 or email
