CHESHIRE West and Chester Council is to tap into the latest ideas on raising environmental quality in the area.
Council representatives will be attending the annual conference of the North West Liveability Foundation (NWLF) in Manchester on May 11 where experts will advise on tackling problems such as litter, graffiti, vandalism and fly-tipping.
The NWLF was set up last year by Keep Britain Tidy following the region’s consistently poor showing in England’s environmental league table.
By working in partnership with local authorities, land managers and other organisations the Foundation aims to provide an effective way of improving the North West’s performance.
“Environmental problems such as litter and graffiti are not only eyesores but can also have a real impact on people’s quality of life,” said Jo Whitaker of Keep Britain Tidy.
“Since its creation, the Foundation has already taken important steps towards improving the way the region tackles environmental problems. We are delighted so many councils and other land managers are attending the conference as part of their commitment to creating cleaner, greener and safer communities.”
