Play streets in Brent


Regular play streets

Residents in Brent have been able to apply to run their own play streets since 2016. Could your street be next?

Four deadlines a year – end of January, end of April, end of July and the end of October. Apply 10-12 weeks in advance.

Up to three hours a session, monthly or potentially even weekly

Strong support from properties in the affected street to be demonstrated in the form of a list of signatures – this will usually mean going door to door.

Road signs, cones and up to six high visibility vests

Try before you buy – run a trial 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 before committing to regular sessions by having a one-off event. More details below. 

Apply at least six weeks prior to your event – eight weeks prior for Car Free Day.

Normally £200 but the council has waived fees for Car Free Day in the past.

All neighbours to be informed of time and dates and a contact number of lead organiser for the day.

Nothing is provided.

By the way…
