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.

Residents in Stockport can apply for a temporary street play order to close their street for kids to play. You can read the guidance notes  download an application form here.  The policy was introduced in June 2013 and Manchester Evening News reported on it.

At least one street has started playing out since then. Please get in touch with us if you are in Stockport!

Here’s a great clip from BBC North West of parent activator Holly Beasley‘s street playing out in June 2019!
