Roads and transport Play Streets policy

Suitable streets

We want more residents from all parts of the city to come together to make the road or street where they live into safe, car free spaces for play sessions, community activities, or clean air events. 

For a street to be suitable for a Play Street closure it should be a cul-de-sac, or a quieter street, that allows convenient and local traffic diversion options.  

We would not support applications from roads that contain bus routes except in exceptional circumstances. 

Where the street has shops or businesses you will need ask the businesses and get their support. If support is given you will need to make sure that safe access for deliveries, staff and customers can be maintained. You might be able to choose a particular time of day and length of time that will suit the businesses.
