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.

Pledge 12

Work with partners to promote healthy lifestyles for the population of Swindon.

Pledge 13

Find new ways to engage communities and neighbourhoods to increase the cleanliness of their local areas.

Pledge 14

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.

Pledge 15

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

Pledge 16

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.
