Become a Street Champion

New Park Road Adrian

The Council is looking for people who care about their area and are keen to take action to improve their neighbourhoods.  By becoming a Street Champion, residents will have a direct impact on the way their street looks by working with their neighbours and the council to find solutions to litter, dog mess and fly-tipping on their streets.

We hope Street Champions will get involved in a range of activities which might include:

  • Developing new types of signage to deter dog fouling and fly-tipping
  • Sticking notes on bins that are left on the pavement all week
  • Talking to neighbours about keeping a look-out for persistent fly-tippers or dog foulers
  • Encouraging neighbours to recycle more

Street Champions will come up with their own solution to resolve problems in their area.

The Street Cleansing/Environmental team will be following up the letter the Council is sending out with a visit to residents to persuade them to engage with the scheme.

Any resident wanting to know more about the scheme or wishing to sign up as a Street Champion should please email streetchampions@lambeth.gov.uk or telephone 020 7936 3069.
