How can CBC help keep your street safe for your children to play?

CBC is encouraging residents to get together and organise Play Streets, as a way to provide a safe and enjoyable community environment for children to play in.

Play Streets involve residents temporarily closing their road to traffic for a couple of hours, allowing children to engage in outdoor activities and play freely close to their homes. The initiative aims to create vibrant and safe spaces within neighbourhoods, promote a sense of community wellbeing and enhance the overall quality of life for residents.

The benefits of Play Streets extend beyond recreation. They encourage outdoor physical activity, reduce traffic-related concerns, and provide an opportunity for neighbours to connect and build relationships. Most of all they allow children to have fun safely outdoors. They would typically take place every other week or once a month.

If you’re interested in organising a play street event, you can find guidance and support from the CBC website  or by emailing BeGreen@centralbedfordshire.gov.uk

CBC is committed to helping residents to navigate the process, check if streets are suitable and talk through any questions and concerns.
