Hull: Would you like to find out more about Playing Out?
Why not pop in to Central Library for a cuppa and informal chat with Amy, a local resident who has set up Playing Out in her street?
Playing out sessions use temporary road closures to allow children to play freely and safely in their own street. In partnership with the Highways department, a ‘Temporary Play Street Order’ is granted to allow streets to ‘close’ for a short period. The street is manned by volunteer marshals who live down the street, safely allowing vehicles to slowly enter and exit, ensuring that people can still gain vehicle access during the session. Before a closure can be granted, the whole street must be consulted with and any concerns carefully considered.
