We are inviting applications from residents who want to turn their street into an occasional play street. This allows children to play freely for a few hours on their own street without fear of traffic. Please refer to the play streets consultation and guidance document at the bottom of the page.
Parents and neighbours can apply for a single temporary road closure, or several at one time.
Applicants should consult with all homes and businesses affected by the planned closure. You have to demonstrate to us by collecting signatures that at least sixty percent of these agree to the road being closed for up to three hours during daylight hours on the occasional dates planned.
Parents should be available to supervise the play and ensure the road is closed off to vehicles, with suitable signs. Residents should continue to be allowed to have access to park in existing bays.
