Cleaner Borough Community Reference Group

Closed 8 Mar 2020

Opened 25 Feb 2020

Overview

The Cleaner Greener Hounslow Programme outlines our collective ambition for the borough – a place where people want to live, visit and raise their families, where communities and the Council work together to maintain the streets and public realm, lead happy, healthy lives and collectively build Civic Pride.

We believe that the community are at the heart of delivering a cleaner and greener Hounslow and a large number of people have expressed a strong desire to be involved in working with the Council to improve the borough’s streets, parks and open spaces tackling issues including litter, fly tipping and recycling. In response the Council will be setting up the Cleaner Borough Community Reference Group (CRG).

The remit of the Cleaner Borough CRG will be to encompass the monitoring and implementation of the cleaner borough programme from developing the Environmental Champions Scheme and identifying areas for new litterbins, to promoting community spring cleans and establishing design out plans for tackling known areas where fly tipping occurs. The CRG will work with an internal Council officer-led Board to co-create and prioritise actions, as well as assist in increasing transparency and public understanding around the Council’s opportunities and constraints for action and galvanise the required wider civic support necessary to deliver our objectives.
