Environmental reports

Environmental reports provide an overview of our Refuse and Environment and Streets and Open Spaces services' activity. 

By providing open data on what we do as a council, these reports are designed to help protect and enhance Cambridge's environment through devolving power to you and individual ward councillors, so that it's you who can help decide the key priorities for areas.

You can attend your local area committee meetings, where we'll provide an overview of priority targets and an update on work being undertaken to tackle these issues. After a presentation during the evening, everyone (including the public and public organisations eg residents' associations) has the chance to ask questions, help set priorities and suggest issues that you would like to see tackled in the neighbourhood. Priorities for the teams to tackle in the upcoming quarter will then be agreed.

There are four environmental report areas, each covering specific city wards:

Previous environmental reports

North area reports

Area committees, residents and businesses are provided with resources that can be allocated for upcoming periods, as follows:

  • Litter/recycling bins for on street locations and dog bins for on street and park locations - requests for bins can be emailed to Streets&OpenSpacesOperations@cambridge.gov.uk. Locations of bins installed can be found on the bin map.
  • Pocket ashtrays: locations of where pocket ashtrays should be distributed from are welcomed by the Enforcement team and can be requested by emailing streetenforcement@cambridge.gov.uk
  • Dog fouling signage: quantities of ‘no dog fouling’ signs are available for ward and can be requested by emailing dogwarden@cambridge.gov.uk
  • Operational resources - targeted dog warden and enforcement patrols, educational visits to schools, city ranger actions and locations for deep cleansing by the rapid response team can be prioritised
