  • Nominate your street for a Street Meet!

    25 days ago
    Street_meet_child_sm

    We all know how much fun it can be to play a game of cricket, host a BBQ with neighbours or let the kids ride around safely on your street!

    So we are trialing ways to make it easier and more affordable for you and your neighbours to close your street for short periods of time for play, a street party or a special occasion.

    We are looking for several streets to test this approach out with us between late April and June this year. Ideas include an Easter party, ANZAC Day get together or Play Street during the school holidays.

    So if you live on a street with low traffic, with residents that are keen to organise and host a street meet and willing to undertake training to manage the road closure, then we would love to hear from you!
