Monitoring Street Cleansing

^

Monitoring the levels of cleanliness and adhering to legal requirements, as set out in the Code of Practice on Litter and Refuse (COPLAR), can ensure that standards are being met.

It both ensures a consistency of grading standards and also identifies opportunities to utilise resources more effectively and efficiently.

This course provides practical guidance on surveying grading standards, land use types and using the information gained.  It can also be adapted to include bespoke elements relevant to your organisation.

Price: £250 + VAT per place (£225 + VAT per place for Network members)

Creating Kerb Appeal

^

At a time when public services in the places we live and work are being severely cut, it is more important than ever to manage the local environment around neighbourhoods efficiently and effectively.

Changes in the social housing sector brought new standards to be met by social housing providers and opportunities to impact on the management of estates and neighbourhoods.  

We are well-known for expertise in managing cleanliness of streets and open spaces and also for working with communities on initiatives and campaigns. This course utilises this expertise and draws on research and practical programmes to inform the content.
