Haringey residents can close off their street to traffic passing through for a few hours so that children can play out more safely. This could for a few hours each week or each month. It is for your street to choose.


How do we get started?
Talk to your street neighbours and sign up supporters. Then you are ready to make a formal application to the council. Download the application form at


How do street closures work?
Neighbours volunteer to ‘steward’ their road closures. People living in the street can still drive in and out at 5mph, guided by the stewards. Through traffic is redirected.
Parents are responsible for their children at all times.
