A Cambridgeshire County Council spokeswoman said: “The county council is committed to supporting communities across Cambridgeshire in confidently allowing their children to safely get outside to play.
“Our officers have been working with parents and our highways team to revise the paperwork for temporary road closures to help make the process easier for parents, while also offering guidance on safely implementing road closures.
“The council fully supports the Playing Out scheme as a way to encourage children to get outside in the fresh air and be active, particularly over the summer.”
Guidance notes and application forms are available here.
You can also join the Playing Out Cambridge Facebook group to meet other residents organising street play in Cambridge.
