Re: London play in the street. We are starting playtime in Rattray Road between Jelf and Mervan from June 2014 as a once- a-month on last Sunday between 2-5pm road closure
Local children welcome to play safely with parental monitoring. Cars still have access but there is no through traffic between the hours of 2pm and 5pm
A series of street closures for children to play out for an hour or so each month to be monitored by parents has been agreed along the lines of http://www.londonplay.org.uk Streetplay ( see website above) Volunteer stewards are needed to provide regular cover, once a month. guidelines on Lambeth website http://www.lambeth.gov.uk/parking-transport-and-streets/street-and-road-maintenance/closing-roads-for-play-streets-guide
