SEAFORD CLEAN-UP DAY
June 14 2016.
Seaford received special attention yesterday when the town centre was blitzed by a variety of mechanical street-sweepers, barrows and new cleaning equipment,all designed to give that extra sparkle.
The clean-up in Seaford concentrated on Broad Street, High Street, Church Lane and Church Street areas and thanks to the volunteers from Seaford Town Council and local residents who went along to assist, it was a real partnership effort by all involved.
Particular attention is being targeted on those who are responsible for putting up unauthorised signage, including advertisements on lamp posts and banners attached to railings.
Yesterday's deep clean in Seaford follows on from the very successful Newhaven town centre clean-up day in April, with more clean-up days scheduled for Lewes Town Centre, Plumpton and Newick in July and August.
Councillor Paul Franklin, Lead Member for Waste & Recycling at Lewes District Council said: “These special clean up days planned across the district throughout the coming months do focus attention on the small things that, when combined, make a big difference. Litter picking, removing waste and deep cleaning makes the area clean and attractive for people to visit and spend time. The Council is also keen to send a message to people and advertisers who display unauthorised signage. We are checking and any unauthorised signage is being removed.”
Unauthorised signage that has been removed will be stored at the Robinson Road depot for 14 days should the owner of the signage wish to reclaim, and if not any unclaimed signage will be destroyed.
LDC will issue £75 fixed penalty notices for littering offences. If you see litters bin that needs to be emptied you can report online at www.lewes.gov.uk/community/15254.asp
