Barnes Ward's Conservative councillors have launched 'Reclaim Your Lanes' - a scheme designed to clean up and improve residential back lanes within the ward.
The scheme, which is run in partnership with the Barnes Residents Association, involves local residents in identifying issues and offering solutions.
Residents are invited to offer their views on how to make back lanes a cleaner, safer and more liveable space.
Barnes Residents Association will run a consultation which will include an initial survey and door to door canvassing.
Local Conservative councillors will support the consultation and, using the results, align ward funding to making residents' suggestions a reality.
The scheme follows the city-wide back lane strategy proposed by Conservative councillors and passed at a meeting of Council in June 2021.
Cllr Antony Mullen, a Barnes Ward councillor, said:
"This is the first step in transforming back lanes across the ward.
"Residents often complain that back lanes are used for fly-tipping or that they are dirty and uninviting.
"Reclaim Your Lanes provides an opportunity for people to have their say on what their back lanes look like.
"We, as ward councillors, will align funding to residents' ideas to make them a reality. But first we need to hear from residents, through the various stages of the consultation we're running.
"Once that work is complete, it will be up to residents to be guardians of their lanes, letting councillors know when issues begin to arise and doing their bit to keep them clean."
