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 Hounslow?

Hounslow is actively supporting street play, saying: “We want to make it easy for you and your neighbours to close your residential road to allow local children to play safely outside without worrying about cars or buses passing through.”

Residents in Hounslow can apply online to close their streets.

For more information, contact the Council’s Community Engagement Team on 0208 583 2405 or email community.development@hounslow.gov.uk

You can get connected with other residents who are organising street play via the Hounslow Play Streets Facebook group!

London Play is an organisation that is funded to support play streets in London boroughs. See more details on their website here.
