Our Neighbourhood Development Officers and Street Scene Teams have been working hard improving your neighbourhoods by carrying out Week of Actions and Deep Cleans as well as their day to day cleansing and maintenance work:
St Ann's: Working in partnership with Community Protection, the Neighbourhood Watch Group and Traffic Enforcement, our teams carried out a Week of Action on Bluecoat Street. Our Street Scene Team did a fantastic job of cleaning the area and carrying
out a general clean of the estate. They have also repaired the fencing in the
car park adjacent to the public footpath.
Dunkirk and Lenton: A Day of Action made a visible difference to the neighbourhood, including planting up the Willoughby Street Planters, a collection of bulky waste and deep cleans of streets.
Basford: Our team deep cleaned the area around Basford United Football Club including Mill Street playing fields. This included paths around the site, the River Leen paths and parts of the Birds Estate. Over the next few weeks new bins will also be installed along the River Leen path.
