Road closures for utility works
If you are a utilities company and need a road closure for your works to proceed, you must get a temporary traffic order. It takes four to six weeks to get this.
You need to complete one of the following forms:
- Planned closure of up to a maximum of 18 months - Planned temporary traffic management notice
- Emergency closure of up to a maximum of 21 days - Emergency traffic management notice
Neighbours can agree to temporarily close their street to traffic to help kids move more and have fun in a safe environment.
If you’d like a Play Street in your local area in Greenwich:
- First, contact email@example.com to find out if your street is eligible (i.e. residential with no bus route).
- Once it is confirmed your street is eligible, talk to your neighbours about having a Play Street.
- Build up support for a Play Street. We recommend you have the support of five residents on your street. Download a letter template to give to your neighbours.
- Have your five neighbours sign in support of Play Streets.
- Submit the application form and your five supporting signatures.
