PROBLEM streets will be targeted and cleaned up as part of a revolutionary new scheme.

Six Goldthorpe streets have been identified as being areas that have issues with tipping and littering.

Several agencies will lead the clean-up and then attempt to build relationships with residents to ensure improvements are kept up.

The roads having issues are Frederick Street, Albert Road, Poplar Avenue, Princess Road, Wellington Street and Flower Street.

All the streets are located next to each other and have been identified as an area in need of particular attention.

Paul Brannan, head of community services and enforcement for Barnsley Council, said: "We will have more bodies on the ground in the next couple of weeks but it's a different and innovative approach.

"It's something we're looking at doing across the borough but Goldthorpe is perhaps the area with the most problems."
