The Chief Executive submitted a report asking Committee to consider how the Council helps celebrate the King’s Coronation.


The report recommended that a grant offer of £250 should be made to each Parish and Town Council to encourage them to organise their own events.  However, an amendment was approved to increase this to £500 in line with the grants offered to celebrate the late Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.


It was further noted that there will be a live screening of the Coronation on Clitheroe Bandstand and that the Council encourages residents having street parties for the occasion.  Reference was also made to the Big Help Out on 8 May and the suggestion of making litter picking resources available to Parishes.



1.   Agree to waive charges for processing street closure orders for Coronation street-parties.


2.   Agree grants of £500 to each Parish and Town Council to celebrate the Coronation.


3.   Agree to make litter picking equipment available to Parishes to support the Big Help Out.
