How to apply for a Play Street Application

Play your part in making Leeds the best city for children and young people to grow up in and to be a child friendly city.

Leeds City Council supports neighbourhoods to close their streets for play and is keen for more children to experience playing out safely close to their homes and the benefits this will bring to the entire neighbourhood.

The Play Streets scheme is a resident-led initiative to enable children to play freely and safely in their own street. Leeds residents can make an application to the council for a temporary play street order. The order will be valid for 12 months and allows neighbours to close their road to through traffic for the purpose of play for up to three hours at a time. Play street sessions can be held either weekly, monthly or quarterly or as a one-off proposal.

The street is only closed to through traffic and during the session still remains accessible to the people who live on the street. The application pack and Play Street Guidance gives full details of how to close the street safely and the best way to manage access by car for residents. The documents ‘Application for Temporary Play Street Order’ and ‘Play Street Guidance’ can be found on the Leeds City Council Website here.
