Community day of action to take place in New Town
4:20pm Wednesday 11th September 2013 in News
A COMMUNITY day of action is taking place in New Town tomorrow.
The event, organised by the Safer Colchester Partnership, kicks off at 8am.
In a consultation carried out last month, residents said parking restrictions were being flouted so parking officers will be on patrol, while Colchester Council workers will be cleaning the streets alongside school kids taking part in litter picks.
National organisation, Trolleywise, will also be dredging the River Colne to find dumped shopping trolleys.
Representatives from Essex Police and Essex County Fire and Rescue Service will be available to answer residents’ questions.
Tim Young, borough councillor responsible for community safety, said: “This event is a great example of how working in partnership delivers effective results.
“We have consulted local residents and listened to their concerns to ensure we effectively tackle the issues that matter to them.”
