Play streets in Barking and Dagenham


Regular play streets

As far as we are aware, LBBD council does not have an active policy on play streets. However, the Every One Every Day Project is working on it. Get in touch with them to find out more. Contact Every One Every Day

Want to try out a play street?

Want to run a trial play street? Perhaps on Car Free Day or another day? You can! Find out if a play street is for you and your neighbours by having a one-off event. Find out how to apply using a street party application below. 

Six weeks prior to the event


All neighbours must be informed of times and dates and a contact number of lead organiser for the day. Level of resident support to be stated on application form.

Nothing – residents must provide their own barriers
