Wigan Borough in Bloom

Our aim is to make Wigan Borough a better place for everybody by improving the appearance of the borough and by encouraging communities and businesses in the borough to work in partnership. As well as improving Wigan as a place to live and work, we also aim to help encourage tourism to the borough.

This is all achieved by producing quality and innovative floral displays and appropriate and sustainable permanent planting schemes whilst dealing with litter, graffiti and vandalism promptly and regularly.

Our aims:

  • Make the borough a clean, green place to live and work
  • Nurture an environment where people feel safe
  • Create prosperous town centres where people wish to visit and shop
  • Encourage communities to be more sustainable
  • Undertake anti-litter workshops and environmental education to all
  • Raise the aspirations of the community and create cohesion
  • Work in partnership with the wider community to deliver The Deal.

Our environmental objectives are to:

  • Develop the borough's town centres
  • Enhance neighbourhoods across the borough
  • Strengthen communities
  • Target resources to the areas that need them most
  • Work in partnership to strengthen resources
  • Set up environmental projects within schools
  • Change behaviour to increase awareness of and respect for the environment
  • Reduce litter and waste.
