Labour and Co-operative Councillor for Hanover and Elm Grove Emma Daniel has called for the Council to give residents in her ward their say on introducing new measures that could help make the ward more tidy.
Having spoken extensively to residents across the ward, Councillor Daniel has submitted a letter for the agenda of the next Environment, Transport and Sustainability Committee on Tuesday 8th October.
It calls on the Council to consider using the upcoming changes in the refuse and recycling collections as an opportunity to launch a community consultation to Hanover and Elm Grove residents their say on how their local area could be kept cleaner and tidier.
Speaking about her proposals, Councillor Emma Daniel said:
In my first few months as councillor for Hanover and Elm Grove, I’ve been struck by just how many local residents have approached me with their sensible ideas on how we can work together to make our ward tidier. .
Whether through volunteer-led graffiti clean-up kits or better provision of litter and dog bins on key roads such as Hartington Road and Southover Street , there are many areas that we can focus on as a community to improve the upkeep of our ward.
That’s why I’m calling on the Council to tap into that neighbourhood spirit. They should launch a community consultation to give the residents their say on the best ways to keep Hanover and Elm Grove tidy.’
