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.

Residents in Norwich can apply to close their roads for street play from one off up to weekly using a single application (there is a small fee).

If you’d like to contact other people organising play streets in Norwich you can join the Norwich Play Street Facebook Group.
