£1m neighbourhood clean-up programme helping to make Hull a tidier city

After launching in March this year, over 100 streets across Hull have now been transformed thanks to the Love Your Neighbourhood tidy-up project. 

After launching the £1m neighbourhood clean-up programme – which aims to make the city’s streets cleaner and greener – earlier this year, Hull City Council are delighted to announce that 11 wards and 125 streets across the city have been thoroughly cleaned and tidied-up. 

The improvement works carried out include; litter bin repairs/replacement; graffiti removal; fly tipping clear-up; bulky item clearance; verge edging; grass cutting; shrub maintenance; leaf removal; hedge cutting; gully cleaning; pothole repairs and street light repairs. 

The Love Your Neighbourhood team is committed to making Hull a better place to live in and will continue to work in different areas of the city a fortnight at a time until all neighbourhoods have been covered. 

It is hoped that this project gives residents a sense of pride in their communities and encourages them to take care of their surroundings. 

Councillor Julia Conner, Portfolio Holder for Environment, said: “As an ongoing and evolving project, the council are delighted that 125 streets have already reaped the benefits. 

“We are very happy with how the project is progressing, with residents telling us how happy they are with the difference the clean-ups have already made. 

“Thank you to everyone who has supported the project so far.” 

Some of the streets that have undergone full cleansing and ground maintenance works include Dunvegan Road, Dressay Grove, Downfield Avenue, Whitebeam Close, Mollison Road, Hemswell Avenue, and Kingfisher Close. 

Doug Sharp, Head of Street Cleansing and Waste Management at Hull City Council, said: “The Love Your Neighborhood initiative is still in the early days of development.  

“Initially, areas were chosen to test the operational logistics behind the introduction of the multi-faceted team.  

“However, as the project moves forward, we will ensure all neighbourhoods benefit from the project, with streets prioritised based on need and with the package of services carried out in each area altered on a case-by-case basis.”
