If you're planning to hold a Remembrance Day parade, you will need to apply for a temporary road closure.
Temporary road closures are needed if you plan to block off a road to traffic for an event, such as to hold a street party, fete or procession. In honour of Remembrance Day we are offering a streamlined, free temporary road closure for parades held on Sunday 11th November 2018.
How to apply
Apply using this form and send any paperwork in the post. We've reduced our usual 12-week time limit to give you more time to get your application in, but notices can still take several weeks to process so please contact us as soon as you can. Please also contact Derbyshire Constabulary as soon as possible as you will need their help for blocking off the roads. The deadline for applying for a Remembrance Day Road Closure is Monday 10 September 2018.
What will it cost?
Nothing - we've waived our usual application fee.
You must contact local businesses if they may be affected by your parade. We're happy to discuss this with you.

Please note: Please apply without delay in order for your application to be processed in time, get in touch as soon as you can if you have any questions.

The draft Statement of Policy Licensing Act 2003 can be downloaded here.

We are responsible for granting licences to the proprietors, operators and drivers of Hackney Carriages and Private Hire Vehicles.
Hackney Carriages may be the traditional London Cab style or may be normal saloon vehicles distinguishable by the fact that these vehicles have a white bonnet and boot/tailgate and will display a roof sign and display a blue plate on the rear of the vehicle.
Private Hire vehicles are usually 'saloon type' vehicles and include mini buses with up to and including eight passenger seats and display a red plate on the rear of the vehicle. Both types of vehicle display a small window sticker of the relevant colour in the windscreen showing the licence details.
The basic difference between the two vehicles is that Hackney Carriages can be "flagged down" on the street or at a rank within the District that it is licensed and Private Hire Vehicles must be pre-booked through a Private Hire Operator. If a Private Hire Driver accepts a fare off the street without it being pre-booked, they are liable to prosecution. It is also important to note that anyone taking a journey in a Private Hire Vehicle which has been "flagged down" may not be insured for the journey.
- Vehicle Licences - All vehicles that are to be used as Private Hire Vehicles or a Hackney Carriage must be licensed by the local authority. We must be satisfied that the vehicle is roadworthy, has a valid MOT certificate (if applicable) and is insured for the appropriate use. You will also be required to provide evidence that you own the vehicle (vehicle registration document / logbook) or proof of purchase if the vehicle is newly acquired. Licences are granted for a period of six-months and your vehicle will need to be tested each time you apply. Applications for vehicle licences must be made on the appropriate form and be accompanied by the relevant fee and accompanying documentation.
As part of the Licensing Act 2003, we advertise applications for premises licenses, club premises certificates, variations and requests for reviews.
All applications are advertised for a period of 28 days, beginning the day after we have received the application. The exception to this is minor variations which are only advertised for 10 working days. All current advertisements are displayed below.
