What’s happening in Barnet?

Although Barnet council don’t have an official street play policy, we know that they are supporting some streets to play out. They also have a street party policy, which is completely free for residents. You could use this to trial a one off play street and work with the council to develop a policy from there.

See here for tips on how to get your council on board.

If you know about anything else happening in this area, or if you need some help with getting things started, we’d love to hear from you.
