We’re adding a pin for every area where parents, residents, a community organisation or the council (and ideally, all of them together) are starting to change things for children through play streets and related ideas. The movement is growing! See what’s happening near you and tell us if there’s anything to add. If you’re interested in starting a play street or in any other action to support children playing out, do get in touch – we can help.
As of August 2020, Manchester City Council have an official play streets webpage and application process!
You can read all their guidance and process on their website here.
Local campaign group WalkRideGM have a nice write up of it here.
Quite a lot of play streets have already taken place across Manchester and there’s a resident-led facebook group you can join here for tips and inspiration.
If you’re needing some help do contact us.
