Tameside Council Pledges for 2016
Councillor Kieran Quinn, Executive Leader of Tameside MBC announced 16 pledges for 2016 at the full council meeting in February.
The Pledges aim to create a better environment in Tameside, including a £1 million fund to tackle potholes, an expansion of super-efficient LED street lighting, the clean-up of 160 ‘grotspots’, plant a minimum of 2,016 trees, and an improvement of recycling facilities available.
Technology is a key player this year too, including the introduction of free WiFi in Tameside’s town centres, and the opportunity for primary school children to attend free coding clubs to learn basic computer skills.
The Tameside Works First initiative will source goods/services needed by the local authority from local Tameside suppliers.
Councillor Quinn said: “I believe these pledges will not only improve the lives of our residents, green the borough and improve skills, but also help us to save money.”
“Everyone knows we live in difficult times. That makes it more important than ever that we all work together to create a borough that triumphs over adversity. I believe these pledges will help us do that.”
