Such closures require a formal legal order to be made. All costs involved for both the closure and diversion signing will have to be borne by the event organiser.
At least eight weeks notice is required and for some events up to three months will be needed in order to organise them properly. Large events may require even longer. Usually roads that are closed for sporting events can only be closed once a year without the consent of the Secretary of State.
