This map shows the growing number of residents and councils who are helping to enable children to play out more. We add information to it when we know of activity happening on streets and in neighbourhoods.

You can find out what’s happening where you live and see whether there are others doing things locally who are happy to give you support and advice. Our Local Authority Directory lists the areas where most change is happening. If you are already doing something on your street and it’s not yet on the map, please email us to let us know.

In Lambeth you can apply for a temporary Play Street Order to close your road for up to three hours per week or month. The link to their application form page here, although the times when you can apply are seasonal, so you will have to keep an eye on their website to see when they are open for applications.

You can read about the first two play streets in Lambeth on the Brixton Blog.
