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.
Currently we don’t know of anything that people or the local authority are actively doing in this area so that children can play out more in the places where they live. But if you do know of anything, we’d love to hear about it.

Hertfordshire County Council has agreed a pilot of monthly playing out session on a street in Tring. This has now been running for a number of years. We are really keen for other streets to apply so that a county wide application policy can be formalised.
