Our vision, priorities and pledges
Priority three: Ensure clean and safe streets and improve our public spaces and local culture
Swindon should offer a clean, safe and fun environment for the people who live here.
We will be working closely with residents to improve the town's cleanliness, both in the town centre and across all of Swindon. It will also be very important that our cultural heritage is protected and maintained for future generations.
Work with partners to promote healthy lifestyles for the population of Swindon.
Find new ways to engage communities and neighbourhoods to increase the cleanliness of their local areas.
Encourage Swindon residents to increase recycling and reduce their waste in line with our Waste Strategy. We will reduce our own use of single use plastics with the intention to stop using such plastics by 2019/20, and we'll encourage local businesses to do the same.
The Council is committed to safeguarding Swindon's heritage and making the best use of our assets by:
- working to secure a viable and sustainable future for our key heritage assets
- encouraging every child to visit the Council’s museums including the Swindon Museum and Art Gallery as a learning opportunity while they are at school
Deliver a programme of work to ensure that residents, visitors and businesses feel that Swindon’s town centre is a safe place to live, work, visit and do business.
