The Neighbourhood Partnership Officers for Arboretum and Normanton have coordinated Take Pride in Your Streets events as a direct response to resident requests.

The events which took place last week provided an opportunity for the pavements to be swept and litter picked.  The gully wagon attended the events and was able to clean all the gullies and following a prior inspection Highways will make any necessary repairs to the roads.

Before the event the officers contacted local residents informing them about what was going to take place.  Letters were also delivered requesting that all cars and vehicles are removed from the streets so that a thorough clean can take place.  During the events the officers were on hand to answer any resident enquiries and coordinate the activities so that the events ran smoothly.

The Neighbourhood Partnership Officers are central to the success of these activities and the Take Pride in Your Street events have been widely appreciated by local residents
