Street Play Pilot Program

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

In Spring 2020, Council will launch a popup ‘Street Play’ pilot program, where streets are transformed into public open spaces for kids to play and the community to enjoy.

Streets participating in the program will be temporarily closed to through traffic or have additional parking restrictions so that road space can be ‘opened for people’ (access to properties will be maintained at all times through formal traffic control).

Council is inviting residents and community groups to tell us what they want to see in your street, it could be street yoga, a portable scooter park, a tennis tournament with the neighbours... the possibilities are endless! We encourage you to nominate your street and ideas, and Council can work with you to plan and run the event, and ensure that it meets relevant road safety and Covid requirements. There is potential for grants and financial support at each event.

Nominate your street by 2 October 2020 to be considered in the first round of the “Street Play” Program.

HAVE YOUR SAY

  • Use the nomination form to nominate your street
  • Use the online map and drag the pins to suggest locations or show whether you support/do not support suggested locations (Note: you will be asked for a username which will be visible to others online)
  • Email - yoursay@northsydney.nsw.gov.au
  • Mail - General Manager, North Sydney Council, PO Box 12, NORTH SYDNEY NSW 2059
