Action plans: we asked our customers in the local area and they said...


We will:

Carry out monthly estate walkabouts. We will report and investigate any issues around rubbish and fly-tipping identified on the walkabouts. Where we find evidence, the people responsible will have the appropriate action taken against them.

Carry out a door knocking/leaflet drop exercise in areas that are hotspots for fly tipping and ensure our Neighbourhood Care Team is aware of the situation.


  • Worked with Oldham Council to empty the contaminated bins on Dairy Street, and send information advising residents to ensure the correct items were placed in the bins.
  • Concerns around fly tipping reported on Apfel Lane/Rosen Square/Otley Close, these items have been removed and a door knocking/leaflet dropping exercise took place in December 2021.
  • Arranged a litter pick for Park Estate which took place on 7 December 2021.

We will:

Work closely with GMP and will continue to work closely with them to resolve the issues. We will investigate and forward all information onto GMP so that we can resolve the issues that some people are experiencing.

Work with our Community Legal Team to ensure that all appropriate actions are taken in a timely manner.

Update: met with local PCSOs on 30 November to discuss the issues raised by residents, and will aim to put an action plan together for those affected areas.
