Apply to host a ‘Street Play’ session on your street

Thank you for your interest in hosting a ‘Street Play’ session on your street. In the form below, you can apply to host one or multiple sessions on you residential or school street.

If you are applying to host multiple sessions, you’ll also need to supply the names and contact details for at least three Street Makers, including yourself, who will help support in the delivery of the ‘Street Play’ session. We will contact each Street Maker to ask them to complete the required road safety and facilitation training before the proposed ‘Street Play’ session takes place.

Before you apply, please read the ActiveStreets ‘Street Play’ Policy and keep a copy for reference as it contains useful links to resources provided by Playing Out, including a consultation letter template and leaflet to help you explain to neighbours about the notion of street play and notify them about your upcoming ‘Street Play’ session/s. Additionally, you will need to complete and return the Indemnity Form before we can process your application.

‘Rule of Six’

In light of the recent government guidance (9 September 2020), it is in everyone’s best interest that we remind all applicants of the COVID-19 restrictions and social distancing – ‘Rule of Six’.

In addition to reading the ActiveStreets ‘Street Play’ policy, you are required to read the information on the London Play website, including their guidance on COVID and Play Streets, which includes a Risk-Benefit Assessment template and statement on what the ‘rule of six’ means for play streets and utilise their ‘Rule of Six’ poster before, and during the operation of your ‘Street Play’ session.

If you are unsure about what you can or cannot do following the latest advice or would like further information, please visit the government’s FAQ page.

Please note that this form is for Westminster Residents and Schools only. If you would like to request a Play Street or ‘Street Play’ in another borough, please contact your local borough or submit your interest via the Ask For It campaign website.
