STREETS across Barrow are set to be turned into a party atmosphere for The Queens Jubilee.

Barrow Council is due to consider plans making it easier for people to apply for street trading consent to allow organisers to set up food stalls.

Ahead of the celebrations, the Council revealed that they have had a number of enquiries specifically around the Platinum Jubilee bank holiday weekend.

The Council has also been asked by the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities requesting the Council support communities celebrating the Platinum Jubilee.

It has been proposed that the need to apply for street trading consent is relaxed for the duration of the bank holiday weekend between June 2 and June 5, 2022.

Currently, permission is needed from the Council prior to street trading commencing. The applicant is required to submit an application form with basic information about the people working on the vehicle/stall, photos of the vehicle/stall, permission from the land owner, public and employers liability insurance, vehicle insurance and evidence of the right to work in the UK.

The Platinum Jubilee will mark 70 years of service from The Queen to the people of the United Kingdom, the Realms and the Commonwealth.

The four days of celebrations will include public events and community activities, as well as national moments of reflection on The Queen’s 70 years of service.

Proceedings will kick off with The Trooping of the Colour on Thursday, June 2. Which will see over 1,400 parading soldiers, 200 horses and 400 musicians will come together in the traditional Parade to mark The Queen's official birthday, usually held on the second Saturday in June.

If the proposal is approved by the Council, the sale of alcohol will still be subjected to the requirements of the Licensing Act 2003 and in most cases a Temporary Event Notice will be required.

The Government has also relaxed licensing hours for pubs and bars licensed under the Licensing Act 2003.

This means that drinkers will get an extra two hours in the pub for three nights in a row to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

The Home Office confirmed that pubs, bars and clubs licensed until 11pm will be able to serve until 1am the following day across this summer’s special Bank Holiday weekend.

Extensions apply to closing times, including entertainment licences, on Thursday June 2 to Saturday June 4 in England and Wales, until 1am each following day.
