CHESTER City Council is joining forces with other agencies to tackle environmental issues in the city centre.
Community safety wardens will team up with police community support officers, fire officers and environmental health regulators and will be making their presence felt in Chester on November 5 and 6.
Littering, business waste storage arrangements, smoke-free premises legislation and buses leaving engines running when idling are some of the issues which will receive attention.
Environment portfolio holder Councillor Jill Houlbrook said: “This is a wonderful opportunity for residents, businesses and visitors to support our street scene teams.
“The teams will be looking at issues like trade waste, general littering and the dropping of cigarette ends. We are determined to get the message that is does not pay to be untidy in Chester, firmly fixed in people’s minds.
“Councillor Pat Lott, chairman of the environment scrutiny committee and I will be out and about with the enforcement teams to show out commitment to the project.”
