Notice from WODC


West Oxfordshire District Council is providing advice for residents who want to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee by holding a street party on the first weekend of June this year.

Advice for safely hosting street parties to celebrate the Jubilee, including applying for temporary licences and road closures can be found on –

Cabinet Member for Communities, Councillor Jane Doughty, said,

“As we look to celebrate the achievement of Her Majesty the Queen celebrating her 70th year as monarch, we can now safely enjoy this milestone with Covid-19 restrictions having been removed to join together as a community and celebrate this occasion. 

“Residents across the District may want to host street parties to celebrate, but may be unsure how to organise a gathering safely. We have a dedicated webpage offering advice and information to guide you through organising your celebration. You can find information on applying for a temporary licence, applying for a road closure and how to let all your neighbours know you’re planning a get together to celebrate.”

The District Council web page explains that for the majority of small, private street parties, organising them can be simple and people will most likely not need to apply for a licence. However, larger events or those that will be selling alcohol or holding live performances, will need to apply for a Temporary Event Notice, which costs £21. To apply and find out more visit

Residential cul-de-sacs or other minor roads not used for through traffic routes may be able to apply for a temporary road closure to host a street party. There is no charge for this application, but applications must be submitted by 31 March 2022, to apply and find out more, visit the West Oxfordshire District Council’s Jubilee event page –

Households in council tax bands A-D in Brize Norton and around West Oxfordshire will soon be eligible to receive a non-repayable £150 Council Tax Rebate from the Government to help households with rising energy bills.

We have now received the guidance from Government on distributing the Government’s Energy Bills Rebate scheme. Over the coming weeks the Council will be working to ensure it is ready to start making payments to those eligible.

Payments will first be made to residents who pay their Council Tax by direct debit in late April 2022.

This rebate will not be taken off your Council Tax bill, but administered as a separate payment. Therefore you will not see it in your council tax bill for the 2022/23 financial year. A leaflet from Government explaining more about the rebate will be included in the bill and you can see that here.
