Love Your Neighbourhood: Boulevard area next in line for a tidy-up

Hull City Council’s new £1m Love Your Neighbourhood project will be arriving in the Boulevard area next week.

From Monday 27 March, residents will see plenty of activity in the area, with the team carrying out a range of clear-up tasks, including:

  • Verge cutting
  • Tree works
  • Grounds maintenance
  • Street cleaning

Love Your Neighbourhood is a new citywide tidy-up programme designed to tackle small areas one at a time.

A new team is being set up to carry out the project, creating 37 permanent jobs at the council.

The team will tidy each area over a two-week period, after which residents should see a noticeable difference to the look and feel of their neighbourhood.

The council is currently carrying out trials ahead of the new team being created.

Over the past fortnight, the team have been clearing up Gower Road area. The results of the verge cutting can be seen in the pictures below:
