Lord Provost’s Platinum Jubilee Street Party Fund 2022

Adapted from an email sent to the New Town & Broughton Community Council Chair & Secretary by  Edinburgh Council’s Governance Officer on behalf of the Lord Provost.  

The scheme is now open for applications and we have been asked to publicise this and share access to the attached  Application Form  on our website, social media etc. and also share with residents’ groups who might be interested.

The New Town & Broughton Community Council can select and forward a total of £500-worth of applications from organisations that fit the description: “charity or constituted group with a bank account in its name”  (N.B. funding cannot be made to individuals). The intention is to provide financial support for proposed street parties within the Community Council boundary.

If this is of interest,please note the short timescale for completing applications. These should be sent to treasurer@ntbcc.org.uk  before  the end of Wednesday 27 April. 


I am very pleased to confirm that following the Council meeting on the 17 March 2022, a fund has been established to meet the cost of local Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Street Parties over the extended weekend of 2 to 5 June 2022.

In order to make the fund easily accessible to local constituted groups and organisations, it is asked that the scheme is administered through the network of Community Councils in the city.

This approach is based on the belief that your commitment and knowledge of your communities makes you best placed to assist in the distribution of this funding.

The proposal put forward by the Lord Provost is that each Community Council can distribute up to a maximum of £500 to meet the cost of celebratory street parties. Local community groups should use this  Application Form to make their applications.

On receipt of the completed forms, it is up to each Community Council to assess and select those applications for approval.

You are then asked to forward your preferred list of application forms, for a maximum of £500 for your area, to the Lord Provost’s Office (lord.provost@edinburgh.gov.uk) by 29 April 2022.

The application forms received will be reviewed by the Lord Provost’s Office by 6 May 2022 so that the funds can be released back to the respective Community Councils or local community groups for distribution.

After the street parties have taken place we may contact you to request evidence that the monies distributed by you were spent on the proposals in the applications that you received.

If you are not wishing to participate then please advise local community groups within your area to submit application forms directly to the Lord Provost’s Office.

Further guidance is set out below.
