The-Basic-Block-PartyHey Neighbours! Summer is just around the corner, and it’s time to relax and have some laid back, good times with your neighbours!

If you would like to have a block party this summer, now’s the time to put in your email requests to Oak Bay Council! If you want the freedom of a street closed to traffic for your party (street hockey, bicycle races, and people in general enjoy a street without cars!) then you’ll need permission from Council to do it.

indicating the date of the party, times and duration of the street closure that you are requesting.
