Play Streets in Stoke Newington

Winston road

Applying for a temporary play street order

Talk to your neighbours and explain what you want to do. Our application pack (Word, 53KB) includes a template letter you could use to send to them. The street won’t be closed completely; people living on the street can still drive to and from their homes. You will need to recruit friends or neighbours to help on the day; there has to be someone at each end of the street to warn cars.

Complete the application form (Word, 53KB) and email it to streetworks@hackney.gov.uk.

If your application is approved, we will give you road closure signs to put up on the day.

Stoke Newington resident Claudia Draper runs a monthly play street on Oldfield Road. If you have any questions on setting up a play street, from convincing your neighbours to the practicalities on the day email hackney@playingout.net or join the Hackney playing out Facebook group. You should also take a look at Playing Out; the not-for-profit information and advice resource for street play.
