Environment Strategy

Oadby and Wigston Borough Council is committed to playing its part in responding to the growing evidence that urgent action is required to respond to global warming.

This Strategy and Action Plan sets out how Oadby and Wigston Borough Council will contribute towards reducing carbon emissions both in terms of actions that it can take as an organisation in its own right and in terms of the Council role in influencing local residents and businesses and encouraging a partnership approach involving a range of stakeholders.

Litter Strategy

Littering is unacceptable, anti-social and impacts negatively on health and wellbeing. Most people say that they would feel guilty about dropping litter. But yet almost one in five people admit to dropping litter consciously. The real figure, which includes those who drop litter but do not admit to it, is likely to be higher. This inconsiderate and anti-social behaviour by a minority of people blights our neighbourhoods, our open spaces and our waterways (Litter Strategy for England 2017).

In order to achieve the actions within this strategy Oadby and Wigston Borough Council will work in collaboration with internal partners across council departments, and external partners including, Leicestershire County Council, local districts and boroughs, businesses, schools, volunteers and voluntary groups to address littering.
