The Clean and Green Champions initiative aims to improve the street scene in Croydon through community participation.Croydon Council would like to find a champion for every street in the borough. Street champions can be involved in anything from litter picks to street spring cleans.
Tracey Bellamy (Croydon Council) can help the street champions in many ways, such as arranging for flatback truck to remove flytipping, the involvement of the Air Cadets, street closures for major clean ups and even the installation of alley gates. Where there are problems with tenanted properties, LBC hold the landlord responsible. Tracey gave an example where they worked with the landlord and tenants of a multi-occupancy building to improve refuse disposal and the use of the recycling bins.
Rubbish if often dumped in the alley between Cherry Orchard Rd and Oval Rd. Tracey said that they would need to know who is responsible for the alley, then the matter could be passed to the Street Scene team for resolution.
Rubbish is also collecting in the former Royal Mail car-park.
Tracey is asking peopl to come forward as Street Champions. She said that it is about taking pride in our area and getting everyone to respect this. An example can be found in South Norwood where people came out of their houses one day to clean their street it resulted in a continuing improved environment.
