During 2018/19 there will be 100 inspections per month to determine the average grade for littering within the county. Inspections are assessed against the Keep Britain Tidy standards. The % of inspections falling below grade b are reported.
Performance for the county remains within the annual set standards and specific issues identified within the inspection regime are managed accordingly.
Grade A is given where there is no litter or refuse;
Grade B is given where a transect is predominantly free of litter and refuse except for some small items;
Grade C is given where there is a widespread distribution of litter and refuse with minor accumulations; and
Grade D where a transect is heavily littered, with significant accumulations.
Performance for the county remains within the annual set standards and specific issues identified within the inspection regime are managed accordingly. The nature and variation of inspections along with seasonal influences can result in monthly variations in performance results. The April to July results were lower (better) than the target whilst recent inspections are higher (worse) than the target of 10%. Overall annual performance remains within standard.
