The Notting Hill Carnival is organised by the London Notting Hill Carnival Enterprises Trust Ltd (LNHCET), not by Westminster City Council. The council’s role is to work with the event organisers, The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, the Metropolitan Police and other emergency services to facilitate the event and manage its impact.
The council recognises the impact that Carnival can have on residents living within its footprint and endeavours to minimise this by:
Some residents will be eligible to have their front garden or basement cleaned of litter following the Carnival. Find out if your street is eligible and register for this service.
Noise levels will be monitored by council officers. If levels are too loud, the sound system operator will be required to adjust the volume. If you would like to make a noise complaint, please call the Environmental Action Line on 020 7641 2000.
All static sound systems operators close down by 7pm and all music on the route will stop by the planned closure of Carnival at 8.30pm.
To create a safe environment during Carnival there will be extensive road closures in the Notting Hill, Ladbroke Grove and Westbourne Park areas on Sunday 30 and Monday 31 August 2015. The road closures will also make traffic around the event areas busier than usual.
From 6am each day, the police will be checking all vehicles entering the Traffic Exclusion Zone to ensure that only residents are allowed in. From 9am each day, all traffic, other than floats and emergency vehicles, will be excluded from the area.
A large number of parking bays will be suspended over the Carnival weekend. Most of these suspended bays will be residents' parking bays. You cannot park in suspended bays during the dates and times shown on the on-street suspension notices. In order to protect Westminster residents’ parking in the areas north of the main Carnival site and route, the council will extend parking controls for residents until midnight.
The following streets will be affected:
