Play streets in Westminster


Regular play streets

Westminster implemented a new ‘Active Streets’ programme in August 2019. In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic at least one permanent play street was launched in the borough. 

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. 

Normally 12 weeks in advance but some national events maybe less. 

£25 application fee (boo hiss)

‘Speak to your neighbours to make sure there are no objections’ (always good practice!) but you are not asked to provide evidence of this.

Nothing. Residents are responsible for sorting out barriers and signage.

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!

Our short course programme on specific topics, team and organisational training sessions are available at affordable prices. Hackney Play Association is willing and able to offer qualifications at all levels subject to demand.
