Car Free Day 2024

Get ready for Car-Free Day!

Norfolk County Council excited to offer FREE street closures for this event on Sunday, 22 September.

Whether you want to host a party with games, music, and food, create a safe play street for children, or simply enjoy the tranquillity of a car-free environment, this is your chance!

Why Participate?

  • Host a Party: Turn your street into a celebration zone with games, music, and food. Gather your neighbours, decorate your space, and enjoy a day of fun and connection with your community.
  • Create a Play Street: Designate your road as a safe play area for children. With traffic diverted, kids can ride their bikes, draw with chalk, play hopscotch, and engage in other fun street games. This not only encourages physical activity but also fosters friendships among children and adults alike.
  • Enjoy a Quiet Street: If a peaceful day is what you’re after, take advantage of the car-free environment to relax. Set up reading nooks, yoga mats, or simply enjoy the silence and fresh air. It’s a rare opportunity to experience your street at its most peacefully.

Deadline: All applications must be received by Friday 23 August.

Apply for your FREE street closure by Friday, 23 August at www.norfolk.gov.uk/playstreets. Don’t miss out on this fantastic opportunity to experience your road without traffic.
