The general appearance of the area including overall beauty, particularly around adding more trees and plants and a focus on the recurring problems of litter, fly tipping and green waste dumping, dog fouling. Streetscape also includes condition of streets, roads and parking. 

Developing local opportunities for children (aged 16 and under) and young people (aged 17–25)

The aim is to empower young people to develop and learn new skills for their future and to make lasting, local friendships.

Improvements to shopping hubs
