Local Area Improvement Groups

Wandle is keen to work alongside our customers and local stakeholders to improve and create neighborhoods that customers are proud to live in.  Our new Neighborhood Planning Framework sets out our commitment towards working in partnership with our customers and local stakeholders to improve the issues and challenges that matters most to them. This includes reducing Anti-social Behavior, improving the local environment, working with young people etc.
