Litter affects us all, it blights our local environment and costs £393,000 to clean-up across Stockport. That is why the new Litter Strategy sets out plans to help to tackle this anti-social behaviour, helping to make Cheadle an even more attractive area and helping our local economy to prosper and grow.
As part of the first national Litter Strategy, litter louts could be hit with £150 fines. This will build on measures to better distribute public bins, making it easier to throw away rubbish, and the recommendation that offenders on community sentences help to clear up fly-tipped waste. These plans will make sure in Cheadle we can all enjoy the local environment and it is a clean, healthy place to live and work in.
We want to be the first generation to leave our environment in a better state than we found it, and tackling litter is an important part of our drive to make Cheadle a better place to live and visit.
Litter is something that affects us all and blights our local environment. The Litter Strategy will make it easier for people to get rid of litter properly in Cheadle, creating an anti-littering culture and introducing tougher enforcement measures to hit thoughtless litter louts in the pocket.
Tackling litter is an important part of my ambition to make sure Cheadle is a great place to live and work in, where the local economy can thrive and where there is a nice local environment for us to all enjoy.
