Temporary Road Closures

If you are arranging an event which will take place on a road in Sedgemoor, an application must be submitted to Sedgemoor District Council to arrange a temporary road closure.

This form of road closure is suitable for events where roads need to be closed to ensure public safety due to people occupying the highway.  Such events include street fairs, carol singing and fetes.  If long stretches of road need to be closed to traffic to ensure the safety of the participants in sporting events, such as marathons or cycle races, then this Act is not appropriate and applicants should refer to Somerset County Council.

Please ensure that your application is submitted to Sedgemoor District Council at least eight weeks before the event is scheduled to take place.

As well as the details of the event itself, your application should include a list and map indicating the locations of:

  • road closure signs
  • diversion signs
  • barriers
  • marshals
  • first aid posts
