Constitutional Parades – Traffic Management Guidance
Lincolnshire County Council and Lincolnshire Police are committed to supporting constitutional parades, such as Remembrance, St George and Battle of Britain.
Recent years have begun to see a steady re-balancing of organisational roles when planning these events. This has seen a focus on Lincolnshire Highways Authority and Lincolnshire Police providing advice and guidance to organisers during the planning phase of constitutional parades.
This guidance aims to provide organisers with the confidence and ability to plan and hold their parade, whilst allowing for operational police resources to be deployed in their core roles across the county.
The requirement to close a road in a safe and organised manner remains the legal responsibility of the organisers themselves.
The aim of this document is to assist with this process and offer guidance to ensure the parades are held safely, adequately informing road users of the upcoming restrictions to allow for a parade to take place. Further guidance can be obtained from the local Safety Advisory Group for any other event.
