Visual Guide to Govanhill Week of Action!

A week of action is taking place in Govanhill from Monday 28 February to Friday 4 March to tackle crime, fly-tipping, graffiti, and rubbish in the streets of our neighbourhood. 

Please share with your local networks so that we can ensure every resident is aware of it. You can also reshare our Facebook post.

The initiative comes from the Crosshill & Govanhill Community Council with the support of Glasgow City Council, and will involve the local community council, school pupils and adult residents, church groups, council staff, Govanhill Housing Association, Police Scotland, and several enforcement teams. 

A deep clean will take place, including street sweeping, litter picking, graffiti removal, cutting back overgrown shrubbery, gully cleaning, and removal of fly-tipped items. Parking will be suspended and some roads will be closed to facilitate this. 

There will also be enforcement teams out, including environmental health inspectors,  community enforcement officers, commercial enforcement, public health officers, and litter/dog fouling enforcement. CCTV from streets, shops, and residents will also be used to trace culprits and issue appropriate action.

Several private lanes will be cleaned and cleared including Kingarth Lane, Plasterers Lane, Crooked Lane and Gaffney’s Lane as well as the lane opposite the garages on South Annandale Street.

This Week of Action is the result of months of work of the local Community Council and the Neighbourhood Liaison Coordinator and aims to build the momentum for continuous collective action to keep our local environment clean.
