How it works

Organising a road closure is straight-forward, enjoyable and empowering. We have created a simple and clear process to make this happen – and we’ll be with you every step of the way.

In Birmingham, we advise that you allow 4-6 weeks to plan a road closure, and in Solihull we advise you allow for at least 6-8 weeks. But we’ll work with you to make the process as quick and easy as possible.

Below are the ‘six simple steps’ you can follow to turn your road into an ‘Active Street’.

If you’d like to hold a road closure on your road email ActiveStreets@theaws.org with your road name and postcode to get the process started!
