Clean neighbourhoods

About our clean neighbourhood officers

The officers work to reduce the incidence of environmental crime and improve the cleanliness of neighbourhoods. They do this through both enforcement and education aiming to reduce the incidence of problems such as fly-tipping, dog fouling, littering, graffiti and also abandoned or untaxed vehicles.

The officers aim to help communities to improve the cleanliness of their own neighbourhoods by assisting with community litter picks, litter volunteers and other relevant campaigns. Please feel free to contact them to discuss any of these issues.

Each officer also supervises a team of street cleansing operatives who in turn are allocated an area of the borough to maintain to an agreed standard of cleanliness.

We often refer to the east and west side of the borough. We use the A447 as the dividing line between the two sides of the borough.
