Street programme to benefit residents

editorial image

Could your street benefit from a spring clean? Would you like to help make your area a better place to live?

Would you like to work with others to build pride in your area? Lancaster City Council is planning out its 2013/14 Street Pride programme and is looking for people to nominate their area to take part.

Twenty areas will be chosen to take part over the next 12 months.

Services provided will include street cleaning, gully emptying, minor highway repairs, weeding and tree pruning. The aim of the project is to give neighbourhoods an initial boost to smarten up their neighbourhood and put pride back into our communities.

There may be different reasons why to nominate an area to take part in Street Pride.

It may be that the area has fallen into disrepair, or it may be that it cannot usually be tidied because of parked cars.

The closing date is Friday, September 6.
