See how the street play movement is growing across the UK

We’re adding a pin for every area where parents, residents, a community organisation or the council (and ideally, all of them together) are starting to change things for children through play streets and related ideas. The movement is growing! See what’s happening near you and tell us if there’s anything to add. If you’re interested in starting a play street or in any other action to support children playing out, do get in touch – we can help.

What’s happening in Dacorum?

Road closures in Dacorum are handled by Hertfordshire County Council.

See the video, information and contact details for Herts here.

Longfield Road in Tring has been granted permanent permission to hold monthly playing out sessions. This has now been running for a number of years.

We are really keen for other streets to apply so that a county wide application policy can be formalised, so get in contact if you live in the area and want to get started!
