Devonshire Road pioneers Palmers Green playstreets

2014-01-12 15.45.14Devonshire Road is set to become Palmers Green’s first play street.

A recent residents’ postal vote in favour of a Temporary Play Street Order will allow the road to be closed once a month to through traffic, to allow children to play on the road.

Residents’ traffic will be allowed in as normal, albeit at walking pace behind a steward. It’s a model of street play that is spreading fast around the country, having started in Bristol, as the Playing Out website explains (www.playingout.net).

The date of the first play session will be announced shortly and Devonshire are inviting residents of other streets to come and take a look so that they can see a play street in action, and maybe consider if it might work for them.
