Salisbury Business Improvement District

Environment enforcement campaign launch

27th July 2018

Salisbury BID is supporting the Salisbury City Council Environmental Enforcement Campaign which is launching Monday 30th July 2018. This means that fixed penalty notices can be issued to people who drop litter or don’t clean up after their dog.

The City Council is working hard to improve the standards of cleanliness on the streets and pavements across Salisbury and we need to make sure everyone is playing their part in keeping the city looking its best for businesses, residents and visitors.

For about 6 months uniformed enforcement officers will be out on Salisbury’s streets for 1 or 2 days a week on the lookout for litter and dog mess. They will concentrate on known litter hot spots within the city.

Food packaging and cigarette ends are litter, as are discarded drinks cups and plastic bottles.

The Council are encouraging residents to work together and do their bit to keep Salisbury clean. This includes using the litter bins, reporting fly tipping and cleaning up after their dogs.

Salisbury BID are also encouraging businesses to do their bit by keeping the fronts of their premises clean and tidy.

Salisbury BID offer a responsive cleaning and maintenance service to our business members, so if you require our services please contact our City Rangers.

The Leader of the Council, Cllr Matthew Dean said “It is more important than ever at the moment that we all work together to make Salisbury look its best over summer. I am encouraging everyone to use the litter bins and pick up after their dog – together we can make a real difference to the city. Fixed penalty notices are for those who don’t keep to these simple rules.”

Residents and visitors to the city are also reminded of current advice from Public Health England about picking up litter in Salisbury due to the recent incidents – if you didn’t drop it, don’t pick it up.
