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 Islington?

Residents in Islington can apply for a temporary street play order for up to three hours per week. Applications will be considered four times a year on 30 January, 31 May, 15 July and 31 October. The council provides cones and signs and will come and help you set up your first session.

This comes after the success of the street play policy launched in April 2014 – read the story from the Islington Gazette.

You can connect with other people playing out in Islington through the Islington Playing Out Facebook Group!
