Hull City Council takes action to keep city’s gullies clean  

A team from Hull City Council are out in force in the Avenues area of Hull this week, taking action to improve the cleanliness of the gullies following concerns raised by local residents. 

As part of this work Park Avenue has received a thorough clean today (Wednesday 6 March), with gullies cleared of debris, leaves and litter, grass verges edged, and the area given a deep clean as part of a rolling programme of improvement works. 

Work has also been carried out on Ella Street, and Victoria Avenue earlier this week, with Westbourne Avenue, and Marlborough Avenue set to be tackled on Thursday and Friday. Residents are being encourage to temporarily move their cars to allow this work to take place. 

This gully cleansing work aims to unobstruct drainage, prevent flooding, and maintain the overall environment for the local community.  

Gullies have been cleared of debris, leaves and litter.

Councillor Julia Conner, Portfolio Holder for Environment, said: “Our city’s streets play a vital role in our daily lives, and ensuring their proper maintenance is crucial.  

 “The gully cleaning work that is taking place across the Avenues area this week demonstrates our commitment to addressing draining issues promptly, helping to prevent flooding, and creating a cleaner, safer environment for all.  

 “We thank local residents for their co-operation and support.”
