BIG CLEAN UP TO IMPROVE AREA 

Abandoned cars and fly-tipping are to be targeted in a major clean-up of part of Dover.


The scheme, badged as 'The Big Buckland Clean Up' will take place next week and will also see litter removed, broken street lights mended and more rubbish bins on the streets and on open spaces.

Schools in the Buckland area will be visited to encourage children to do their bit in the clean-up.

Cllr Nicholas Kenton, the council's Cabinet Member for Environment, said: "This is a very significant project and we are delighted at the support from the community and a range of agencies. 

"We are fully committed to working with all partners to clamp down on environmental enforcement and anti-social behaviour."
