On Wednesday 1st February EMAS held a free CPR and Defib demonstration. The event was well attended with lots of positive comments received.
Planning on having a street party to celebrate the event?
You will need to apply to Leicestershire County Council to close your street/road to traffic by completing sections 3 and 4 of the Kings Coronation application pack:
All fees associated with the legal application have been waived for The Kings Coronation and the application time reduced to 5 weeks, please note this is ONLY for The Kings Coronation and does not apply to other events.
If you wish to apply for a road closure or any other restrictions the last date for submission is Friday 31st March 2023. Applications after this date may not be able to be fulfilled.
Given the occasion and following Government guidance we will not 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. Further Government advice on road closures for street parties can be found here; https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/your-guide-to-organising-a-street-party
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.
Signs and cones
Leicestershire County Council Highways is offering the loan of signs and cones, should you require these please complete section 5 of the Kings Coronation application pack above. Please be aware 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 31st March 2023, after this date we cannot guarantee availability.
Please note that the fees for the loan of signs will be waived for all Kings Coronation events but equipment must be returned or it will be invoiced for.
