Council is halfway through the project it hopes will improve streets across the borough

A major clean up of residential streets around Bexley has take place - as residents were forced to move their cars to allow the operation to take place.

The council focused its efforts on the heavily parked residential side roads across the borough with special attention paid to those streets where cleaning is difficult due to the vehicles.

So the council put up notices and wrote to residents in selected roads in Belvedere, Bexleyheath, Erith, Northumberland Heath, Sidcup and Welling, asking them to keep their roads clear on the days the council’s cleaning team arrive to clean up.

Now in its third week, the response from residents has been very positive and many roads are showing the benefit of their clean sweep.

Cabinet member Peter Craske watched the deep clean of South Gypsy Road in Welling this week and said: “We’re more than halfway through the deep clean and I am really grateful to residents for the way they have worked with us to help bring their streets up to standard.

“We know how much local people value having clean streets, so I am delighted that our good financial management has meant we have been able to find the money for this initiative.”

Work on the deep clean will continue through to November 6.
