Street Scene

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
