IT will cost nothing for revellers to mark the Royal Wedding with a street party in Huddersfield.
Kirklees Council have confirmed there will be no charge to residents who want to shut off their street for a celebration of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s nuptials.
The confirmation came as Government ministers repeated their call for authorities to make it easy for people to join the celebrations.
Councils across the UK say they will slash or waive road closure charges.
Cambridgeshire County Council is the latest local authority to pledge it will not charge to close roads for royal wedding street parties on Friday, April 29.
Gloucestershire made a similar promise earlier this month and Norfolk said it will cut the charge from £450 to a celebratory £29.04.
A Kirklees spokesman said: “Kirklees Council does not charge for a one-off road closure of this kind. Anybody who wishes to apply for a closure to celebrate the royal wedding should contact us for an application form on 0800 731 8765.
“The completed application should arrive at least six weeks in advance as we need to consult with other parties including the emergency services”.
The spokesman added that it would not be possible to close stretches of main roads.
Communities Secretary Eric Pickles said he wanted councils to take a “common sense” approach to public celebrations and did not want street party organisers faced with “reams of forms, high costs and red tape”.
