Issued media release re West Berks proposed cutback in litter picking and street cleaning:

I have issued the following media release regarding West Berks Council's proposed cutback in litter picking and street cleaning:

West Berkshire Council are consulting on proposals to change litter picking and street cleansing services to save money. However, Lib Dem environment spokesman Councillor Alan Macro branded the consultation “meaningless”. He said “roads in towns and villages outside town centres are currently litter picked every two weeks. The proposal is to replace that schedule with ‘routine work, supplemented by reactive work where land falls below an acceptable standard’. That phrase is meaningless to most people and that therefore makes the consultation itself meaningless. The council needs to withdraw this consultation and replace it with one worded in plain English”.
