Ealing Council has proposed that a play street be introduced in Marlborough Crescent.

The Council intends to make a traffic order restricting vehicles so that children can play safely at least once a month on a weekend day.

The area involved runs from the south west kerb line of Vanbrugh Road to the northern erb line of Bedford Road, and the road would be closed between those points.

The scheme called “Playstreet” would close these roads to vehicular traffic on one Saturday or Sunday each month (or such other occasions as the Council may approve) for a period of up to 3 hours to enable children to use them for play schemes. Vehicles would be able to access premises in the closed sections of street and would be escorted by a steward to reach their destination.

The proposed Order, other documents including plans giving more detailed particulars of the Order are available by either e-mailing or inspection at Customer Services Reception, Perceval House, 14-16 Uxbridge Road W5 2HL between 9:00am and 4:45pm on Monday to Friday, until 6 weeks have elapsed from the date on which either the Order is made or the Council decides not to make the Order.

Any objections or other representations about the proposed Order should be sent in writing by e-mail to or by post to the Highways Service, Perceval House, 14-16 Uxbridge Road W5 2HL, quoting reference ORD 4030/djc until the 24th March 2017. All objections must specify the grounds on which they are made.
