Clear and cleanse

Our clear and cleanse programme maintains narrow streets in town centres that can be difficult to access. Parked cars and vehicles must be moved from these streets for essential road gully emptying and mechanical sweeping to take place. This stops weeds from growing and road gullies becoming full and blocked.

Clear and cleanse programme

We have identified those streets in towns across Cheshire East where clear and cleanse is required. To minimise disruption, this work is carried out in a single day in each street in our clear and cleanse programme.

Clear and cleanse guidance

If your road is affected:

  • advanced warning signs are erected and postcards are delivered to properties on affected streets two days prior to the designated Clear and Cleanse day, allowing residents and motorists time to make alternative arrangements for parking of vehicles
  • residents and motorists must move their vehicles prior to work starting
  • upon completion of the work, the signs are removed and vehicles are allowed to return to the street
