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.
Nottingham City Council launched its city-wide street play scheme in June 2017. One mum described a playing out session as children “getting exercise without noticing.”
The Council is helping some streets get up and running with play and one of the first events took place in Lees Hill Street in Sneinton, Thursday 15 June.
As a resident you can apply to close your road up to 12 times a year. The application form is on their website here. Please contact Ria Ashcroft if you would like to get playing out started in your street.
You can read more about the scheme here.
