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.
The Greater London Authority has a vision for neighbourhoods that encourage the creation of ‘shared’ public and communal space used by adults and children at the same time and their guidance includes case studies of play streets (page 77). However day-to-day issues relating to street play are generally dealt with by the individual boroughs. Use this directory to look up details in your local borough or use the near you map to search by postcode.
