Estate walkabouts scheduled across Richmondshire

Richmondshire’s programme of spring estate walkabouts began this week in Richmond, Colburn and surrounding villages.

Set up by the district council – and working with the tenants panel – the walkabouts deal with issues that make a difference on a local level.

Council officers, councillors, and tenants ‘walk’ the estates to identify and deal with problems – in a bid to keep them clean, safe and tidy.
