Getting the basics right

5 Days of Action: Getting the basics right 9-13 June, Todmorden

Every day, the Council do a wide range of jobs you may not always be aware of. Some jobs, such as street cleaning, may be done in the early hours of the morning, while others, such as pest control, licensing and road safety may not be seen directly - but all contribute to making Calderdale a better place to live.

On 9-13 June 2017, we will be out in Todmorden on the key themes of safer, cleaner, greener with partners including West Yorkshire Police and West Yorkshire Fire Service, Together Housing, Canal & River Trust and Incredible Edible Todmorden.

Safer

Let's be safer

We will be focusing on a range of things, including tackling problem parking outside schools, safety checks at bars and food hygiene inspections.

 

Cleaner

Let's be cleaner

We will be doing a range of activities including litter picking, bin emptying, jet washing and de-odourising, plus spot fines for littering and fouling.

 

Greener

Let's be greener

Some of the activities which will take place will include advice on recycling and pest control to residents and businesses. We will also be checking on air pollution.

Week of Action: 23-29 October, Halifax Town Centre

Calderdale Council and partners held their first week of action in Halifax in October Half term, 2016.

From 23-29 October, the Council did a concentrated week of action, where alongside partners in the police and fire services, we will be highly visible in Halifax Town Centre, which will include all the area outlined in the BID for the Halifax Business Improvement District.

The aim of the week of action is to make a real difference in Halifax (rolling out to other areas of Calderdale at future dates), highlighting some of the jobs the Council and our partners in the Fire Service and the Police do every day. A time table of events will take place throughout the week around these key themes:

Safer
