Students in the city will continue to receive helpful tips and advice on a range of environmental, security and safety issues next week as part of the Student Week of Action. 

Nottingham City Council, Nottinghamshire Police, Community Protection and representatives from the University of Nottingham and Nottingham Trent University, will be advising students on a range of issues to help them be socially responsible whilst living in the city.

Cllr Nicola Heaton, Portfolio Holder for Community Services at Nottingham City Council, said: “We work hard with our partners to provide students with the right tools at the start of term to help with waste management and community relations in highly populated student areas.

“Officers will be door knocking next week including the Aboretum, Dunkirk and Lenton, Radford and Wollaton East and Lenton Abbey and they will meet with local residents and partners to discuss issues and how everyone can work together to improve community relations. “Social responsibility is high on the agenda, with information being provided on waste collections and the City Council’s free “Bin-formation” Text reminder service for students who live off campus.

“We hope in response to the hard work, students will be responsible neighbours and also seek further advice if they need it. Our website offers a lot of tips and advice about living in Nottingham.”

The Student Week of Action begins on Monday 12 October where officers will begin engaging with student properties on waste messages and promoting the free student bin alert text service. A ward walk will also take place in the Lenton Triangle with local ward councillors.

On Tuesday 13 October there will be a ward walk in Dunkirk and Lenton and the Arboretum with local ward councillors and engagement with Nottingham City Council’s Waste Advisors and local Community Protection Officers. Resident meetings will also take place in Radford and Lenton to involve local residents.

On Wednesday 14 October Lenton Boulevard and Radford Boulevard will get a deep clean.

Officers will also be door knocking and engaging with student properties reinforcing waste, anti-social behaviour and security messages in the Aboretum.

On Thursday 15 October door knocking will take place in Wollaton East and Lenton Abbey with officers from Nottingham City Council, local ward councilors and Community Protection Officers and Nottinghamshire Police. The messages will then move into Lenton Abbey where there will be an information stall outside the University of Nottingham Campus Gate on Woodside Road.

On Friday the agencies will focus on student properties in Dunkirk and Lenton including Ednaston Road, Lace Street and Beeston Road where they will be looking at occupation of properties, any fencing, lighting or gardens disrepairs.
