play streets!

Play Streets are resident-led temporary road closures to traffic, to allow children to play safely in their neighbourhoods. These schemes are amazing for kids' mental & physical health, and for building strong communities

In 2019 we became Activators for the brilliant Playing Out CIC, to advocate for more play streets in our area. 

We helped to persuade Norfolk County Council to permanently scrap their fee to close roads for community events, bringing it in line with best practice

If you want to host a play street, there are loads of great resources on the main Playing Out site. ​Make sure you follow our Playing Out Norfolk Facebook page, & get in touch if you have any questions!
