Public furniture plays an important part of the UKs streetscapes and town designs. Visitors to this country are often impressed by how clean, tidy and welcoming city centres, towns and villages are. But our citizens also take great pride in caring for the appearance of their towns, and home owners, business owners and government authorities are all doing their part to maintain a picturesque England.
Over the years tidy town competitions have encouraged citizens and local councils alike to take care and pride in the appearance of their public spaces, and this has gone a long way towards making the UK the beautiful and inviting place that it is.
The role of public street furnishings in keeping the UK beautiful
Street furniture is an important part of the design of the UK’s public spaces. Furnishings like street benches, seats, litter bins, bollards, planter boxes and cycle racks make up the decor of our outdoor areas.
Local councils authorities are responsible for ensuring these items are readily available and for maintaining, cleaning and preserving these items.
