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 2011, the first playing out sessions in Oxford were held – you can read about the first one in the Oxford Mail.
People living in Oxford can apply for a road closure using the council’s procedure for street parties, you can use a single form for several dates. If you are interested making Oxford’s streets friendlier places you may also be interested in the Oxford Streets for People initiative, run by Oxford Civic Society.
To contact others who are organising street play sessions in Oxford you can join the Playing Out Oxford Facebook Group.
