The Select Committee has been set up to focus on the quality of the local street scene.
There have been significant changes to Council’s Smarter Neighbourhoods Programme, which has resulted in alterations to the way a number of services, such as street cleansing and grass cutting, are delivered.
The main aims of the Select Committee include the following:
- Understand the impact of these service changes on the ‘Street Scene’ in North East Lincolnshire
- Identify areas of potential improvement focusing on building community resilience and increasing civic pride and make recommendations to the Council’s cabinet.
The Select Committee is due to hold four public hearings in September. More details about the hearings will be provided at a later date.
The Select Committee will look at the following topics that sit under two headings – the physical environment and environmental anti-social behaviour.
Cllr Stephen Beasant
Chair of the Select Committee
