Shabana Mahmood MP Labour Member of Parliament for Birmingham Ladywood
Over 600 residents have joined Shabana’s calls to demand a cleaner Birmingham and find a solution to the city’s problem with litter and dumping.
Throughout the summer, Shabana wrote to every household in Birmingham Ladywood outlining her demands for a better waste service for residents across the city.
With less than a year until Birmingham hosts the Commonwealth Games 2022, it is clear that we have a once in a generation chance to clean up our streets and set a better course for Birmingham’s urban environment.
In her letter, Shabana outlined an action plan to improve the service:
- Fast action on fly-tipping. We need new fast-response fly-tipping crews to focus on hotspot areas and investment in deep clean teams to bring streets back to life.
- Tackling rogue landlords. Tougher action on landlords and tenants who flout the rules, so that those who destroy our streets with litter are held responsible.
- A public plan from the Council. Evidence that the Council is taking the concerns of residents seriously with a public plan to turn around the waste problem in our city. A plan that is fully costed and spells out what additional investment will be made in the service.
Shabana has written to all of the survey respondents thanking them for their participation.
Shabana has now asked Birmingham City to respond to the concerns of constituents, outlining their plan to change the dial on Birmingham’s problem with waste, litter, and fly-tipping.
