SOCIAL landlord NPT Homes will be holding a clean-up day with the residents of Farm Road in Briton Ferry next week.
NPT Homes, along with Spotless Recruitment, hope the day will help improve the look and feel of the area.
Staff, including the housing officer and estate ranger for the area, will be attending the community clean-up to speak to residents about how to get involved, and to find out what they want to see happen in their street and immediate community.
This initiative is the pilot of a wider project that NPT Homes is looking to introduce.
It is hoped that it will encourage residents and community members to get together and form their own tenant and resident committees throughout the county.
Tenant empowerment officer Kathryn Cook, said: "After conversations with residents, it was apparent a community clean-up would benefit the area.
"Not only will it improve the look and feel of the area, but it also encourages local people to work together as a team to achieve something that will benefit the immediate community.
"The community clean-up will be the first of many get togethers with the residents of Farm Road, with an aim of the community forming their own network of residents who can communicate ideas and suggestions back to their landlord.
"We hope to hold a follow up event towards the end of February."
The clean-up will take place on Thursday, January 23.
