Celebrate success and encourage others

To help create great neighbourhoods through the Our Streets strategy, we support residents to take action to improve the local environment. The good news stories from our community are worth celebrating and sharing so that residents can encourage each other to have a go at taking any action (small or big) that's good for planet and people.

We'd love to hear from you, your family, friends or community group and share your story via one or more of our communications platforms (digital E news, social and/or printed media), as agreed with you.
