The streets of Hodge Hill will be a hive of activity as a major new 'clean-up' project gets underway. 

Street cleaning crews and the Graffiti squad will be descend on the area and join kerbside cleaners, and bulky waste collection crews in clearing the area of litter and unsightly graffiti.

The initiative involves Birmingham City Council, West Midlands Police, West Midlands Fire Service and other partners through the Environmental Delivery Group in Hodge Hill, who are all working together to improve the cleanliness of the Constituency. 

The new Project aims to tackle issues of rubbish and anti social behaviour in 20 streets across the Constituency over the new few months. 

This will bring additional resources to the area, and more importantly will involve a number of community days where local residents and the statutory agencies will participate in cleaning up their streets together, which will hopefully encourage the areas to be maintained in a clean and tidy manner.

During the project, residents will be asked to identify any issues they would like the Council and its agencies to tackle and this will also provide an opportunity for local people to feedback on how satisfied they are with local services.  

Rob James Constituency Director for Hodge Hill said: “I am delighted that this joint initiative with partners is taking place within the Hodge Hill Constituency.  This is a positive way forward to raising awareness and engaging with local residents to create a safer, cleaner environment and a neighbourhood we are proud to live in.”

Inspector Mohammed Hanif, West Midlands Police Citizen Focus Programme, said: “This project will strengthen partnership work in the area to tackle issues that matter most to our communities.

“The questionnaire designed for this operation will allow local service providers to engage with local people to identify further issues and concerns and how we can improve service delivery to our communities.”
