Street cleaning

This request has been withdrawn by the person who made it. There may be an explanation in the correspondence below.

Dear Glasgow City Council,

1. What is the department within Glasgow City Council which has the responsibility for cleaning pavements and street gutters?

2. Does the Council have a policy on this cleaning?

3. If so, how frequently are pavements and gutters supposed to be cleaned? (e.g. once a week, once a month, once a year?)

4. If this varies from area to area, what is the target frequency for the area including Wilton, Kirkland, Dalmally, Raeberry, and Braeside Streets, Glasgow? Is there a particular day of the week, or date of the month on which cleaning is supposed to be carried out in these street, and if so what is it?

5. How thorough is the cleaning supposed to be? For example, only loose items of litter to be picked up, or complete removal of all detritus including leaves and dirt?

6. How is the cleaning of gutters carried out - by small cleaning truck or manually with a brush?

7. If gutters are cleaned by cleaning truck, what is the policy where this is made impossible or difficult by parked cars?

Yours faithfully,

G McNair

I have marked this request as having been withdrawn by the user as it appears to have been abandoned. The Council issued a fees notice under the Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004 and it would appear that the requester has not followed this up.
