Malvern Hills District Council – Adopt a Street Scheme- For those community minded that wish to keep their streets clean of litter

Do you love where you live and would like to help keep it looking clean and tidy?

Then join the Malvern Hills District Adopt a Street scheme and make a difference to your community.

All you have to do is sign the online pledge which includes:

  • Telling us which area of land you would like to adopt (public land only unless you have permission from the landowner)
  • A promise from you to litter pick your chosen site at least four times a year on dates of your choosing and at your convenience

The area you choose to litter pick can be as small or as large as you like.

You can use your black bin at home for disposing of any litter you collect but if you find the volume you are collecting is an issue then please contact  and someone will assist you.

In return for your commitment we will loan you:

  • Litter picking equipment and bags
  • Guidance on health and safety
  • Send regular newsletters about the Adopt-a-Street scheme

We will still be carrying out our litter picking and street cleansing duties as well as a range of other activities to encourage people to dispose of their litter responsibly. Together we can help keep Malvern Hills District clean and tidy.

Pavement Parking in Abberley

Dear Parishioners,

It is often brought to our notice that there is a problem with pavement parking in Abberley. It is misguided to think that it is helpful to park across the pavement. It may allow cars to pass unimpeded but it makes it IMPOSSIBLE for pedestrians, people with sight problems and pushchairs and prams to pass safely.
Below you will see the rules about parking as written in the Highway Code. They are advisory but extremely sensible. If it is ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY to park on the pavement please make sure that you leave enough room for a pushchair to pass.

HIGHWAY CODE
244 You SHOULD NOT park on a pavement.
Parking on a pavement can obstruct and seriously inconvenience pedestrians, people in wheelchairs or with visual impairments and people with prams or pushchairs.

LAW GL(GP)A Sect 15
243 DO NOT park
– near a school entrance
– opposite or within 10 metres (32ft) of a junction
– near the brow of a hill
– where the kerb has been lowered to help wheelchair users and powered mobility vehicles
– in front of an entrance to a property
– on a bend

NB DO NOT instructions are prosecutable whereas SHOULD NOT is advisory
