The street cleaning budget at the city council has been cut year after year by the Labour Council. The result is that we are beginning to see the return of graffiti and dirty streets.
For 7 years, between 2004 and 2012, while the Conservatives controlled the city we increased the street cleaning budget and the result was that Birmingham was consistently voted 'cleanest' city in the UK' That is all now all gone. Under Labour the streets are getting dirtier, litter is increasing and graffiti has returned to our neighbourhoods.
However, your local Conservative councillors and their team are determined to make a difference by organising graffiti removing squads.

'I was just so angry that the first thing visitors saw, as they reached Bournville, was a welcome sign covered in graffiti'.
