Partners from across Sneinton are coming together for a ‘Week of Action’ in the area week commencing Monday 19 October.
The ‘Week of Action’ will tackle issues raised by the local community and will see a focus on businesses along Sneinton Dale Shopping Area and surrounding streets.
The Neighbourhood Action Team, which include officer from Nottingham City Council, Local Ward Councillors, Community Protection, Nottingham City Homes, Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service and Nottinghamshire Police are building on knowledge from recent ‘Weeks of Actions’ to coordinate their efforts to make a real difference to the area.
During the week there will be:
- A number of Deep Clean along Sneinton Dale and neighbouring streets
- A Dog Fouling Day of Action including free dog microchipping on Edale Road
- Vehicle Operations
- Traffic Enforcement and education
- Drive Less Campaign
- Safe as Houses Campaign
- Education around bins on streets, bin contamination, trade waste and littering
- Checks on untidy gardens
Cllr Nicola Heaton, Portfolio Holder for Community Services, Nottingham City Council, said: Our ‘Weeks of Action’ provides an effective opportunity for all partners to work together and really blitz an area. Officers can get to the heart of any problems by speaking to residents and businesses about any concerns they are having and look at ways to resolve them.”
“Our call to residents in the area is to play their part. Get involved where you can, and encourage your friends and family too!”
In addition the teams will work with local action group STARA (Sneinton Tenants and Residents Association) to promote their ‘Don’t mess with Sneinton’ campaign and to do a litter pick with local residents and businesses on Friday 23 October at 4.30pm meeting at the Windmill Car Park and litter picking on Sneinton Dale.
There will also be a local issues meeting hosted by the Dales Local Ward Councillors, Councillor David Mellen, Councillor Neghat Nawaz Khan and Councillor Gul Nawaz Khan, at the Muslim Community Organisation on Beaumont Street on Tuesday 20 October at 6.30pm.
As part of the ‘Week of Action’ Sneinton will also be one of the first areas in the City to be taking part in the new dog fouling campaign that Nottingham City Council is running in conjunction with Keep Britain Tidy. The ‘We’re Watching You Campaign’ is a social experiment which uses correx glow in the dark posters in hotspot streets to combat irresponsible dog owners. This campaign will be launched on Monday 19 October.
A ‘Dog Fouling Day of Action’ on Wednesday 21 October will reinforce the campaign and engagement will take place on hotspot streets with local residents as well as free dog micro chipping at 2pm outside Sneinton Police Station.
