Upping It – The Terrace Square

  1. What the project will do

    The Terrace Square is an area of 200 terraced streets between Platt Lane, Wilmslow Road, Moss Lane East and Princess Parkway, covering parts of Moss Side and Rusholme.

    This ambitious resident-led initiative began with a target to get local people to recycle more, which would lead to them keeping their streets and alleys clean and to educate, inspire and create responsibility around waste and fly-tipping.

    The project encourages ‘street representatives’ to monitor and encourage recycling in their street, and address fly tipping in back alleys.

    The work done since 2013 has shown that you can reduce fly tipping, and create a sense of pride by developing and ‘greening’ back alley spaces. This funding will pay for the initial costs of greening the alleys. Such as planters, soil and plants, which will be put in by the residents.

    Training and support will be developed for the street representatives to make sure they feel valued, and to encourage the sharing of ideas, discussions on future developments and opportunities to address any issues.

    By making training and support sessions an important part of Upping It, the group is developing the skills of its volunteer street representatives and helping to keep the project going strong in the future.
