Tooting residents who wish to close their road for a 'Big Lunch' street party on the 18th July have one week left to get their application in (deadline, 18th June).
From Wandsworth Council:
"Although the Big Lunch itself is being held on Sunday, July 18, party organisers who want to close their street to cars to mark the occasion must notify the council one month earlier. This deadline allows just enough time for the legal notices advertising the closures to be drawn up and published. Anyone who wants to free up their street from traffic for the day will need to pay a fixed fee of £75. This flat-rate amount will contribute to the council's overall costs of drawing up the notices, publishing the adverts and all the other expenditure associated with a road closure."
