Take this chance to show up the state of your streets

Are you dancing in your street? Or does the state of your street give you the hill street blues?

Living Streets has launched The State of Our Streets Awards to find the best and worst-kept streets in the UK.

Whether you’re quietly fuming about cracked and broken pavements or if you love the street where you live, this is the opportunity to make your nomination for the Living Streets’ State of Our Streets Awards.

The national charity is inviting the public to upload their photographs or videos of the local streets they love or loathe to find the best and the worst examples of street maintenance in the country.

An independent judging panel will announce the ‘winners’ of each category in mid-November and the best overall submission will win a digital camera.

Living Streets chief executive Tony Armstrong said: “This is an opportunity for the public to show how important their local area is to them either by highlighting an example of neglect, perhaps a long outstanding repair on their street or a lack of crossing points for pedestrians on a busy road; or by celebrating something which enhances the urban environment and makes walking more enjoyable, maybe a pedestrianised area in their local town, attractive planting on their street or seats which might be a boon for older people.

“Not only will this give a snap shot of how the UK’s streets look, but we hope this will also demonstrate to local authorities that people do care about their streets and they are an important priority for local communities.”
