Shaping neighbourhoods: Play and informal recreation, Supplementary planning guidance, published by the Mayor of London in September 2012, defines playable space as: ‘…one where children’s active play is a legitimate use of the space. Playable space typically includes some design elements that have ‘play value’: they act as a sign or signal to children and young people that the space is intended for their play. Playability is not just a matter of the physical characteristics of a space. It can also be influenced by social and cultural characteristics. For instance a space that is dominated by people hostile to children’s presence is not playable, whatever its physical characteristics.’
