    Do Brighton Council no longer employ street cleaners? Wife and I walked from Waitrose to Churchill Sq along Western Rd and were astonished at the state of the pavements which were very heavily laden with litter, fag ends and dog muck I know it is the reponsibility of indivduals but surely the council must have some responsibility.
    Yes, they do. They cleaning lorries and litter pickers operate constantly.

    But keeping up with anti-social people isn't easy, especially given the cuts.

      But you will get a fine if seen dropping litter in Brighton, think it's £75.
      There were quite a few caught and fined in Littlehampton about Easter time who were caught dropping fag butts.The fine with costs, amounted to about £290.00 per offence.

      Brighton council are far to busy,offering support for jihadis is far more important than keeping the streets clean..some taxpayers are just nasty little Englanders.
      You'll be disappointed with that brain-dead, meaningless post. If you're not, you really should be.

      You'd have to ask yourself why you posted it - aside from broadcasting to everyone your own stupidity.

      Let's see - 'Brighton & Hove City Council care more about supporting jihadis than clearing up litter. True or false?'

      Did I say I was shopping in Waitrose? No I didnt I just used that as a known focal point that even the buses name as a bus stop rather than any other shop or road.

      Last weekend in Liverpool, I barely saw any litter on the streets (or graffiti). Ditto Newcastle.

      I sometimes wonder that having so many visitors and a very transient population means that there isn't the same pride in the city or sense of ownership or feeling of belonging.

      Was that today? I walked along half of that route yesterday, and it wasn't as bad you describe. Maybe the litter louts and dog walkers all went out overnight.

      Incidentally, there are street cleaners in Brighton, because I've seen them.


      We caught the bus home from The Old Steine at 1.00pm so it would have been about 1230 ish. I must admit I have never seen a cleaner on any street as per te old days of having having a barrow and trolley as per Robbie in Eastenders or even a motorised sweeping vehicle that does the job

      In which case I dispute your description, unless, as I say between 2pm yesterday and 1pm today, people went out with their dogs and litter to make sure 'it was very heavily laden'.
      I think you could be exaggerating.

      NSC at its very best ~ a post based on assumption on a matter the poster hasn't got a clue about!!

      Was just about to post the same (see also the graffiti thread). Spent Friday to Monday in Liverpool, and was surprised at how clean and apparently well-kept the city was, and the contrast with Brighton. And it wasn't just the city centre - we walked the 2.5 miles from the centre to Anfield on Sunday afternoon, through several areas of council and social housing, and again although the areas were clearly quite poor, the contrast with the comparable areas of Brighton when it came to lack of litter and fly-tipping, well-maintained gardens and public areas, was marked. I have no idea whether it's something to do with the council maintaining and cleaning the areas better, or a greater sense of civic pride amongst the locals or what, but it was a bit of an eye-opener, when you've become used to run-down, scruffy, litter- and graffiti-plagued Brighton, and went against the usual stereotypes about Scousers, areas of deprivation etc etc.

      Should I say 'heavily laden is probably a slight exageration and I should perhaps have described it as an abundance of rubbish. I must admit the vast majority of it was take away items like MacDonalds and KFC cartons plus sanwich wrappers and empty Costa coffee sachets so it is possible that I saw it before the cleaners had arrived to clean it up after morning snacks and coffee.
