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 Manchester?

Quite a lot of play streets have taken place across Manchester and there’s a resident-led facebook group you can join here for tips and inspiration.

The council are working on a policy at the moment, in the meantime you can complete this form (which includes a link to guidance from Transport for Greater Manchester) to send to your councillors to apply to organise a play street where you live.

If you’re needing some help or know of anything else happening in Manchester, please contact us.
