Temporary play street orders

What are Temporary Play Streets?

A Temporary Play Street is a resident-led, outdoor free street play activity for the purpose of children's play. It is independent from the council and requires parent/adult supervision to ensure children's safety. The road is temporarily closed and car access is restricted (but not stopped - residents take turns to 'steward' cars needing access to or from their properties). Suitable 'Play Streets' streets are preferably quiet residential roads or cul-de-sacs and should be closed until no later than sunset. To find out more visit the Playing Out website .
