In Lambeth you can apply for a temporary Play Street Order to close your road for up to three hours per week or month. The link to their application form page here, although the times when you can apply are seasonal, so you will have to keep an eye on their website to see when they are open for applications.

You can read about the first two play streets in Lambeth on the Brixton Blog.
