See how the street play movement is growing across the UK.

Find out what’s happening where you live and if there are streets already playing out. We know that there are many active streets not listed here so please let us know of anything you are doing so we can add it to the map. You can also check our Local Authority Directory to see if your council has a street play policy yet.

What’s happening in this area?

Currently we don’t know of anything that people or the local authority are actively doing in this area so that children can play out more in the places where they live. But if you do know of anything, we’d love to hear about it.

If you live in the area and want to get things going, see our tips on how to get your council on board. If you get stuck or need further help, then please get in touch with us and we can help!

Residents in Cotswold District can lobby the Gloucestershire Council, which is currently interested in developing a street play policy after one street played out in Gloucestershire. Get connected via the Playing Out in Gloucestershire facebook page!
