Street party applications to open soon for Car Free Day celebrations

Applications to host a street party on this years’ Car Free Day on 22nd September, will open soon, with all residents being encouraged to apply. Residents are reminded that it is free to apply for a road closure to close their road to traffic and turn them into play areas and party venues for the day. 

Car Free Day is an annual event which brings families, residents, and communities together in a safe place without the fear of cars, trucks or lorries getting in the way. It also helps reduce air pollution. It also coincides with school streets schemes that boroughs have implemented to encourage people to use alternatives to driving to get around.

Applications for a street party to hold a Car Free Day event between, 20th and 22nd September, will open on, 15th July.  Any street can apply to take part, providing it isn’t a main road, bus route or emergency vehicle route.
