Litter on the Streets
Hungerford has a dedicated Street Cleaner employed by West Berkshire Council, but if you notice litter let us or Streetcare know and we will try and get it cleared up.
The Town Council has urged West Berkshire Council to amend the parking tariffs to help provide more short term parking spaces.
SIDs (Speed Indicator Devices)
Are you aware of any areas of speeding concern in Hungerford? Training is available to use the SIDs to help reduce speed.
