See how the street play movement is growing across the UK

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 by entering the name of your local authority (council) in the box below. Tell us if you want to get something started in your area – or if there’s anything to add to our map!

What’s happening in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole?

Although there has been some interest, this council doesn’t yet have a street play policy in place. You can however apply to organise a street party, which could be used to run a one off trial play street. This has worked really well to get things started in other areas across the country. See this page for guidance and application form.

If you want some tips on how to get your council on board, see here.

If you know of anything else happening in this area, or need some help getting things started, please get in touch with us!
