Play streets in Haringey


Regular play streets

Haringey has many long-running play streets and although the process of starting them requires some effort, once permission is granted the order is in place indefinitely.

No deadlines but the process takes around two months.

Close your street for up to three hours per week, fortnight or month – in daylight hours only

Haringey requires 60% of households to physically sign in support of the proposal. Get a group together to make it easier to collect signatures.

Road closed signs and barriers, cones, high visibility vests, lanyards for stewards

Try before you buy – trial 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 before committing to regular sessions by having a one-off event.  Use a street party application to make it happen – see how below. 

Apply around six weeks before your event.


Flyer all residents within the proposed closed section of road and obtain signatures from at least 70% agreeing to the proposal.

Council provides barriers and cones
