There have been calls this week for local authority bosses to roll out an Adopt a Road scheme to clamp down on littering

“The participating group of individuals would agree in advance a Litter Maintenance Programme with the council for an agreed number of times during the year,” he said.

Director of Services John Brannigan agreed to bring the motion before the next SPC meeting.
