The clean city partnership has supported these projects in 2008/09:
- Neighbourhood Charters- working with six priority neighbourhoods in Birmingham to develop cleaner, safer, greener neighbourhood charters. For more information about the programme so far click here to view a presentation.
- Anti Graffiti programme- Birmingham City Council and a variety of partners have developed a sustainable solution to deal with graffiti. The approach works in 4 ways: intelligence, enforcement, removal and prevention.
- Clean Priority Neighbourhoods- this project provides cleanliness survey data from the city's 25 priority neighbourhoods to support neighbourhood managers to prioritise and focus cleaning activities. A surveyor, travelling in an electric car, measures litter, fly-tipping, fly-posting graffiti etc.
- Secured sites- secures and regenerates fly-tipped and disused land across the city. Projects range from gating, fencing and lanscaping, to complete regeneration of sites into parks and wildlife gardens.
