Leeds City Council

Leeds have had a play streets scheme since 2014 and have had over 110 streets playing out in that time. Take a look at Leeds City Council play streets page.

In Highways there are few things we can do to improve children’s lives, but this is a massive one. Allowing children to play safely in the street is something I remember doing as a child and it’s great that the next generation are able to have that benefit as well…

…play streets is working for Leeds and it costs next to nothing.
