Love where you live?
Bromsgrove District are being asked to think about a simple
question this year – do you love where you live?
Over the coming months the ‘Love Where You Live’ campaign will
bid to bring good community activism, bad littering and ugly fly
tipping under the spotlight to raise awareness of some persistent
environmental crimes and reduce waste.
The campaign around the district and in Bromsgrove town centre
will particularly target cigarette litter, litter thrown from cars
and fly tipping – while giving community groups and residents that
love where they live more support than ever.
Bromsgrove District Council’s portfolio holder for environment
Cllr Michael Webb said: “Environmental issues affect us all and
that’s why in newspapers and magazines, car parks, even in pubs we
are going to raise awareness of some of the key environmental
issues that affect our beautiful district. Through a combination of
ongoing clear messages and regular enforcement we hope to reduce
these problems at their source.
“We hope that over the course of the next few months the Love
Where You Live campaign will really keep the idea in people’s
minds, leaving absolutely no doubt what our community stands for.
Dropping litter or fly tipping may be perpetrated by a minority of
individuals, but it is the majority of community that suffer.”
The Love Where You Live campaign also supports active local
community groups and residents who help the district council by
looking after their neighbourhoods. If you or your local community
group would like some Love Where You Live support from the district
council’s waste prevention officers, please contact Anna
Wardell-Hill on 01527 881715.

You Live will become a familiar sight around the district.
