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.

Land and Buildings Disposal Policy

Unlike private property owners, local authorities are subject to constraints when they come to dispose of land or buildings in their ownership. Some of these constraints are enshrined in law; others arise because of a general expectation that local authorities should be seen to act fairly when disposing of land and ensure the best outcome for their residents.

Changing requirements and regular review of property assets will at times lead to them being deemed surplus. In addition, there may be circumstances in which a disposal is considered the best way to achieve one or more the objectives of the Council. The purpose of this policy is to provide a framework for the disposal of such property assets.
