Keeping our streets clean!

The street cleaning frequency on residential streets throughout Havering will be increased from once every three weeks to once every two weeks.

Street cleaning machines and street cleaning teams will be seen more often throughout Havering later this year as a result of a £400,000 investment by the council.

It is part of a number of measures in the Council’s budget for the coming financial year, which will deliver improved local services across the Borough. Residents have told us that they expect the Council to deliver high quality local services and ensure our neighbourhoods are clean and well maintained.

A record breaking investment of £10 million this year in Havering’s roads has already been announced, along with £250,000 to improve CCTV.

Councillor Damian White, the Leader of Havering Council said: “This is a budget that responds to and acts on the issues that matter to our community the most.  It is a budget that will see major improvements in roads, pavements and street cleaning while continuing to invest in services for people who are more vulnerable.

“It is an ambitious budget that will bring significant improvements to all parts of the borough with investment in neighbourhoods, job creation and more genuinely affordable housing.”
