City services from across Nottingham have joined forces today (Wednesday) in an effort to clean up and ‘really blitz’ part of the city.
Nottingham City Council, Nottinghamshire Police and Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service have been descending on Top Valley throughout the day as part of the ‘day of action’.
The authorities joined forces to highlight issues in the area and provide information to local people to help keep the area cleaner and safer.
A number of Top Valley’s streets have been targeted over the course of the day with a particular focus on waste management, dog fouling, graffiti and crime.
Councillor Nicola Heaton, Portfolio Holder for Community Services at Nottingham City Council, said: “Our ‘Days of Action’ provide 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 about any concerns they are having and look at ways to resolve them.”
Streets targeted by the ‘day of action’ include: Thompson Gardens, Rees Gardens, Chevin Gardens, Huggett Gardens, Kyle View, Townsend Court, Jacklin Gardens, Hogan Gardens, Snead Court and Lytham Gardens.
Trading Standards, Nottingham City Homes and Community Protection also took part in the ‘day of action’.
