Council looking for your ideas for great streets – what resources don’t involve money?

Finding solutions for  Redbridge

Your Street forum groups logoRedbridge  Council is inviting residents, businesses, community groups and other interested parties to give ideas on working together to create great streets and neighbourhoods 🙂

That includes street cleaning, tidy gardens and trees, as well as lighting, safe roads and volunteering opportunities. This comes out of the financial pressure on the Council.  It  is about cost cutting and it is also about a creative look at how to do things differently.

The Council has asked four members of the public to form a “streets commission” to investigate how we can make our streets great streets. The commissioners are holding 4 public meetings across the Borough, have your say by booking your place.  A strategy will be written afterwards  “Our streets – a strategy for great neighbourhoods” and this will be shared online when it’s completed.

The reality is that there’s less money and so our streets may suffer. At Sophia Hubs we areros-southern great believers in collaboration and drawing on the wisdom in the community. We hope that this will draw out good ideas and a willingness to get involved in making things better.  Feel free to put your name down for our next Sophia course that takes a look at community ideas and work out a mini pilot. Ros Southern,  Coordinator
