Cllr Lee Carter (Labour), Telford and Wrekin Council cabinet member for neighbourhood, commercial services and regeneration, said:

“Our council teams were out this spring working hard to keep our neighbourhoods clean, green and safe, as part of our commitment to creating a better borough. 

“This work makes a real difference to our borough, and the efforts contribute to making Telford and Wrekin a great place to live.

“We know that people want to live in areas where parks, streets, and open spaces are looked after.

“This work has been a dual effort between ourselves and residents. 

“I’d like to say a big thank you to our residents and street volunteers who turned out for the Keep Britain Tidy’s Great British Spring Clean.

“Each resident that has run up a report on work that needs to be done has also helped us to keep the borough clean, green and safe. 

“The work does not end here, our teams will continue to work through the summer, and Residents can always report issues to the council on our website.”
