love your parish chelmsford

We all want our home neighbourhoods to be well-looked-after. Not only is a well-kept area nicer to look at, research shows that people are more likely to behave antisocially, drop litter and even commit crime when their surroundings look neglected.

Sometimes areas need a ‘spring clean’ to address a few problems at once. This year has seen several Love Your Parish Days. Any parish in Chelmsford can book a Love Your Parish Day, when the council’s street care team visits to pay special attention to their neighbourhood and complete a ‘to-do list’ provided by the local parish council. This includes tasks like:

  • Litter Picking
  • Footpath Sweeping
  • Road Sweeping
  • Removal of vegetation/weeds
  • Graffiti Removal
