Springtime makeover for Sutton Way flats

7 December 2016

Sutton Way flats in Ellesmere Port will be a riot of colour next spring, thanks to a recent bulb planting event.

The Council’s Streetscene and Localities Teams, along with local ward councillor Tony Sherlock, were joined by staff from Plus Dane, Cheshire Constabulary and local residents in Singleton Road and The Boulevard.

The daffodil bulbs were funded by Councillor Sherlock and have been planted as part of a wider partnership project called Operation Beacon.  The partnership, which includes Plus Dane Group, Cheshire West and Chester Council, Cheshire Police and Kier, is working with residents to bring positive improvements to the area.

The Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment, Councillor Karen Shore said: “This bulb planting event is just one of the improvements residents have asked for. I look forward to seeing the wonderful display in the spring.

“This partnership initiative is working with residents to tackle some of the other issues around the storage of waste and fly tipping in the area.  Areas identified as environmental crime hot spots have signs in place warning that CCTV is in operation to catch offenders.” Recently Cheshire Constabulary and Plus Dane Group visited all properties in Sutton Way flats to gain a better understanding of residents’ issues and concerns.  During the visits, residents were offered the latest property marking kits.
