Stockwell residents tell all to Keep Britain Tidy

Over the last six months residents in Stockwell have been talking to national anti-litter campaign group, Keep Britain Tidy (KBT), about what they think of their local area. From what it's like to live in Stockwell, to the positive and negative factors that impact on their neighbourhood and their lives, locals have been having their say in order to make a difference.

Earlier this year Keep Britain Tidy invited Lambeth Council to join eight other local authorities from across the country to take part in an innovative research project known as DAPP (Deprived Area Perception Project). Stockwell was chosen because of its high ratings in cleanliness scores, but low perceptions of environmental quality among locals. The DAPP project aims to understand how residents perceive their local environment and why.

James Martin, project lead at Keep Britain Tidy, said "As a visitor to Stockwell I was greatly encouraged by the local environment, it's clean, attractive and has some wonderful urban green spaces. The challenge for all councils, including Lambeth, is to provide services and local environments that meet the needs of residents, helping and encouraging them to act responsibly. By getting involved in this project, Lambeth Council is demonstrating its commitment to this challenge."

The research has already reaped benefits with the council taking action on key recommendations made by Keep Britain Tidy on the back of residents' views. Over the next five months the council will continue to work with Keep Britain Tidy to improve the local environment of Stockwell by reducing negative behaviours that impact on residents’ perception, such as littering and dog fouling.
