Street Pride is Civic Voice’s national campaign supporting local action to help rid our streets of unnecessary clutter. We are gathering evidence to support a national call for action to create more streets we can be proud of.
At the heart of Street Pride is a campaign toolkit with information on a street survey which your local group can undertake. Download it here along with our campaign briefings (on the right).
Street Pride is focused on the four most widespread sources of street clutter: bollards; signs; posts (including lampposts and traffic lights) and guard rails. Street Pride builds on the excellent initiatives already undertaken by a number of civic societies. By joining the Street Pride campaign your efforts can make a real difference to reducing street clutter locally and by working together we can produce a national picture which will help Civic Voice make places more attractive, enjoyable and distinctive.
Over 75 local groups are already involved and you can also sign up to Street Pride by sending us your details at email@example.com
