26 Environmental Report - SAC pdf icon PDF 2 MB


The Committee received a report from the Community Engagement and Enforcement Manager.


She corrected a typographical error on P16: A corporate group from ABCAM, consisting of 166 16 volunteers completed a day’s volunteering where they weeded underneath old oak tree, renovated four benches, and completed various cutbacks in the nature reserve.


The report outlined an overview of the council’s Streets and Open Spaces, Environmental Health and Shared Waste service activity in the Area Committee area over the past six months.


The Committee discussed the following issues:

      i.          Requested officers to monitor clothes being left next to Glebe Farm recycling bins (instead of in them), or just being dumped.

     ii.          Volunteer groups and community payback welcome in Trumpington eg Baker Lane. Officers involved were unclear how to set this up for allotments etc. Could the Community Engagement and Enforcement Manager liaise with contacts to organise?

   iii.          Monitor plants, trees and hedges overhanging Trumpington footpaths.
