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.
We know of two streets in Derby that have held playing out sessions, and the council is supportive of street play allowing road closures on a monthly basis (providing the initial session goes smoothly).
If you would like to get in touch with someone who is organising sessions locally, you can email the Strutts Park Community Group via this link.
If you live in Derby and would like to apply for a road closure in Derby, you can do so for free using this webform http://www.derbylive.co.uk/hire-our-spaces/outdoor-spaces/road-closures/
