Kit to get started with your play street, including Road Closed banner signs for use in local authority areas which allow this style. Official Playing Out resource.


Active travel can start on your own street. Make it easy and safe for children to learn to cycle and scoot or simply enjoy playing in their own neighbourhood by setting up play street sessions. This pack provides the information and resources to help you get started, including the legal signage you need to close your street.
