The BCR Street Scene Group is a group of local volunteers who work, together and separately, to
- spot and report problems, such as overflowing waste bins, ‘fly-tipping’, graffiti tagging, pot-holes, roads that need sweeping. dog fouling, hedges that need cutting back etc
- pick up litter and arrange community tidy-ups
- get permission from building owners and remove and paint over graffiti on property and street furniture
- sweep up leaves and trim back overgrowth from roads and pavements
- remove fly-posting– and the glue!
- produce guidance eg posters and leaflets to help with issues such as waste management
- work with both universities and Bristol Waste to welcome students, and help them live as part of the community
- try to prevent problems arising by commenting on planning applications
