The Committee considered the plans of the Council to promote the Keep Britain Tidy (KBT) Great British Spring Clean 2019.

 

The Council supports annual events through the provision of litter picking sticks and refuse bags for community groups, as well as collecting and disposing of the litter collected.  This year, the campaign will be promoted more widely and a focussed media campaign will be developed using Facebook, Twitter, the HPBC website and the local media to encourage greater participation by community groups.  A review of litter bin provision would also be undertaken as part of a wider review of litter.

 

Reference was made to existing activities undertaken by community groups and the assistance provided by the Council in the provision of equipment and the disposing of collected litter. 

 

It was queried whether investigations as to the ownership of the land banking Glossop Brook near the bottom of Simmondley Lane could be undertaken, as that area required some attention.

 

RESOLVED:

 

1.    That the enhanced promotional activities which will be undertaken to support and encourage more residents and local groups to get involved in the campaign; and

 

2.    That the proposed review of litter bin provision which will be undertaken during the campaign be noted.
