BROADLAND District Council has been awarded four stars out of a possible five for cleanliness in public areas in the recent Clean Britain Awards.
Cllr Roger Foulger, Broadland's Portfolio Holder for Housing and Environmental Services, said: “We are delighted at the award, but determined not to rest on our laurels. We are asking anyone who sees 'grot spots' in our district to please report these to us as we are keen to spruce up our verges and council public areas.
“A major spring clean is underway. We will have our cleaning crews out for an intensive clean up over the next few weeks. We live in a beautiful part of the world and we want to keep it that way, so if people spot littering, fly-posting or graffiti we want to know.
“We are also tackling dog fouling in the coming months with a focused education and enforcement campaign following a parish survey which highlighted that this is still a problem in some areas.
“Failing to pick up after your dog is such a needless crime, which can spoil an area for everyone. Together with our residents we can eradicate it.”
The council is also supporting groups who want to clear up other public areas in their communities through a community clean-up initiative, providing support and resources to help, such as providing a skip, or litter picking equipment or rubbish bags.
