Exploring street play initiatives and the impact of residential street design on play

Street play initiatives in disadvantaged areas: experiences and emerging issues is an evaluation report by Tim Gill which explores how local, resident-led street play initiatives and programmes are being taken forward in disadvantaged areas of England. The report, which is published by Play England, is in response to concerns about the decline in children’s opportunities for outdoor play.


Residential Street Design and Play is a literature review by Helen Forman of policy, guidance and research on residential street design and its influence on children’s independent outdoor activity.
