Love clean Reading update



Abandoned trolley by Whitley library

Councillors have been around the Ward using the Love Clean Reading app this month. Issues to sort (or have been already) include an abandoned trolley by Whitley library, fly tipping by the Highmead close garages and a broken bin on the Litton Road alley way. Love clean Reading is the easiest way to direct Council services to where they are most needed so please download the app and help us keep your area tidy.

Love Clean Reading November

There have been many recent successes after residents had raised concerns with Councillors.   Recent successes from Councillors speaking to residents have included a change to the settings on the Leighton Park lights (which was proving a nuisance to houses opposite), a new dog bin installed to Shinfield Park by Willow Gardens, removal of some over grown trees on Hollydale Close and the installation of signs on Sycamore Road concerning a spate of bushes being damaged in the summer months.  Contacting the Council via Love Clean Reading or through your local Councillors is the quickest way to get issues sorted.

Deep Cleans come to Church Ward

Recently Reading Borough Council Teams have been out in Church Ward armed with brooms, brushes, dustcarts, graffiti cleaning equipment and hedgecutters.  This has been to give your roads a deep clean as part of a new initiative called ‘Love Clean Reading.’  Roads completed include Foxhays Road, Holberton Road and parts of Northumberland Avenue.  Roads that will receive a Deep clean in the next month include Linden Road and the top of Blagdon Road.

Work included street sweeping, verge edging, gulley emptying, weeding, tree pruning and clearing vegetation. Residents and local businesses also have the opportunity to feedback to get their views on how effective the work was. If a deep clean has taken place on your street recently let us know what you think and fill in the form below.

The work being carried out by the Council as part of the Love Clean Reading initiative is in addition to the Council’s regular street cleaning and maintenance programme.  Your Labour team in Church committed to improving the environment in your ward.
