Freshview is an initiative to bring your neighbours together for a day to improve your street.

The idea is to make your local area and the borough cleaner, safer and greener by improving the quality of the environment.

Community Freshview is led by residents, it is your chance to make a difference to the environment in your local area. Whether you want to brighten up a green space, give a facelift to a disused area of land or any other activity that improves your local environment, the council will help you do it.

If you belong to a community group or have volunteers who want to help improve the environment in your neighbourhood, we can help you by giving you equipment, expertise and some extra helping hands.
