CHESHIRE West and Chester Council has joined forces with the police, fire service, probation service, CH64 and Connexions to tackle local crime and grime.
The Neston Cleaner Safer Greener Week has looked at problems including anti-social behaviour; problematic parking; fly-tipping; litter, chewing gum on pavements; graffiti and speeding.
Jane Makin, Cheshire West and Chester community safety partnership team leader, said: “Multi-agency events that provide opportunities for partners of different agencies to work together are an excellent way of providing additional resources to local areas, allowing community members to actually see a difference to their local community.”
Cheshire West and Chester Neighbourhood Environmental Action Team (NEAT) and Streetscene have strived to remove graffiti in the local area, providing a good base for future enforcement by Cheshire police if graffiti starts to creep back. They have also taken part in other clean-up operations in the area to improve the local environment.
Steve Kent, director of community and environment services, said: “Our local agencies have demonstrated their support for Neston by contributing to this event.
“These events are popular with communities. They make a significant contribution to community safety and improve the local environment. The anti-criminal damage message will be reinforced by professionals in local schools, as well as advice provided to members of the public on home safety.”
Residents can report anti-social behaviour and report issues to the Community Safety Wardens on 0300 123 7033. Alternatively, residents can contact Streetscene at Cheshire West and Chester Council on 0300 123 7026.
