6. Street sweeping
Street sweeping is part of our ongoing regular cleaning activity
There are six sweepers; two truck mounted road sweepers and four smaller sweepers that we use to regularly clean the roads, car parks and pavements around the borough.
- Town Centre Shopping areas - are swept daily by our sweeper teams from before the morning commute.
- Roads – the main roads are cleansed every week and minor roads are swept twice a year.
Where cars are parked, it is not always possible to sweep or cleanse around them, in particular where there is a risk of damage to the parked car.
Private roads are not maintainable at the public expense irrespective of any access rights to the public. There should be a managing agent who should be carrying out cleaning and maintenance of the road/pathways.
