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.

Following a successful pilot in 2013, residents in Haringey are now able to apply for free to close their streets to traffic for up to three hours per week during daylight hours.

The application process asks residents to consult with and get agreement from a majority of their directly affected neighbours.  The council will provide all the signs that you need.

You can read about the details of the scheme and how to apply on the Haringey website or email traffic.orders@haringey.gov.uk

If you live in Haringey and are interested in street play, why not join the local Facebook group to share experiences.
