Play streets in Ealing


Regular play streets

Ealing embraced play streets in 2013 and hasn’t looked back! Why not make the magic happen on your street? 

Applications are accepted four times a year – dates for 2020 are 28 February, 3 April, 17 July and 6 November. Apply at least eight weeks before your first session.

Up to three hours, once a month

The majority of the residents in the street must be in support of the proposal – the council needs to see signatures to prove this so some door knocking will be needed.

Everything you need except tea and biscuits!

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 (using a street party application). More details below. 

Apply 4-6 weeks before your event.


All neighbours need to be informed of time and dates and the council informed about any objections.

Nothing – residents must provide their own barriers

By the way…

Councils are liable to change dates, process and contact details. We try hard to keep this page updated but if you notice that something is not right, please let us know!
