Getting the Site Right
Would you like to be a getting the site right inspector and help make your neighbourhood a better place to live?
Involving tenants and residents is essential to the process of managing, monitoring and improving the grounds maintenance service in Kirklees.
Kirklees Council Streetscene aim to ‘Get the Site Right’ in their work on your estate but they are not there every day. They need you to let them know when problems occur or any issues you are aware of.
What is a getting the site right inspector?
It is someone who has the power to report poor work and channel views and ideas of other
tenants on how to improve your estate.
You can also attend annual site inspections with a member of the gardening team to discuss work done and put forward ideas for improvement.
For more information you can attend one of the workshops below
Huddersfield Town Hall, Reception Room on Monday 25th March 2013 from 2.30pm to 4.00pm

The Royal Horticultural Society is launching a new investment project in Yorkshire. Working in partnership with Yorkshire in Bloom, a new £100,000 fund will be distributed over the next three years to support grassroots community gardening across the region.
Gardening groups will be able to apply for funds to make a difference in their neighbourhoods. Advice and support will be given to groups by the RHS Regional Development Team based at Harlow Carr.
- Small grants are available for groups that require start-up funding; a minimum of £300 and a maximum of £500 are available.
- For larger projects, the minimum grant is £5,000, the maximum is £10,000.
The RHS wants to ensure that we are able to maximise our support for the projects we fund, so all applicants will be asked to register with
RHS It’s Your Neighbourhood Campaign.

The deadline for the grant programme is 15 March 2013. RHS Yorkshire in Bloom aims to make decisions within four working weeks.
