22 September is World Car Free Day, when all around the world towns and cities allow people to experience streets free of motor traffic.

It's a great chance to re-imagine our streets around people.

Start your own Parklet with our handy hacks and guide.

At our Living Streets stall we can offer you all the information and helpful starting points to transform your street into a place for seating, cycle parking or lanes, gardens, play areas or art.

Anyone can set up a parklet or a pop-up park to transform streets into a vibrant community hot spot. You’ll need permission from your local council, but after that, it can be easier than you might think. Why not work together with your neighbours to improve your local area for everyone who lives there?

Come and find us for inspiration and our step by step guide to creating a parklet.
