Local residents help put pride back into their streets

Nominations from the public have helped to set Lancaster City Council's new Street Pride programme for 2013/14.

More than 20 areas around the district will benefit from Street Pride, which kicks off on Monday, 21st October on Pinewood Close in Lancaster.

13 nominations from the public have successfully helped to set the programme, with the remainder coming from local councillors.

“Getting the community involved with Street Pride is key to helping to make it  a success," says Councillor David Smith, Cabinet member for Environmental Services, "and it doesn’t stop with nominating the areas that we will be targeting – everyone has a part to play in keeping our district clean.

“Street Pride doesn’t replace our regular cleaning programme, but rather complements it in areas that may not otherwise be able to be targeted.  It also gives residents the chance to get involved.

“If your street hasn’t been chosen, you can still play your part by helping to organise a community litter pick or other event to build some pride in your area and to help keep the streets clean.”

Street Pride is a series of deep cleans in which a hit squad of city council workers moves into areas where there is a large amount of litter, dirt and overgrown vegetation to give them a thorough clean.

The city council works with other public agencies on Street Pride with the police, Lancashire County Council, the Probation Service and the voluntary sector all playing a part. 

• More details on the scheme, including how to organise a community litter pick, can be found at www.lancaster.gov/streetpride
