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 Lewisham we know of a couple of streets that have closed for play sessions on a one-off basis and are hoping to make it a regular thing.
If you live in Lewisham and would like to close your street for play, then you can contact the council via this page and use the same process as if applying for a street party.
