Birmingham's Royal Street Parties

It's being reported on Radio 4 this morning that there are only a few official royal street parties in the UK, live from Handsworth, Birmingham - a story also recently reported in local news.
Party for King George V & Queen Mary’s Silver Jubilee 1935.
Outside of 43 Winson Street – opposite the Bellefield Pub
Does this mean there are few street parties and has this always been the case?  In Handsworth, the answer is an emphatic no.
