Tameside Pledges 2016 

 Your Priorities, Our Pledges


Making a difference for Tameside communities
The Tameside Pledges 2016 are a commitment to deliver work on a number of priority areas that have been identified as being of importance to Tameside residents. 

Each of the Tameside Pledges is delivered through a bespoke programme of activity centring around areas that local residents tell us are important to them, such as supporting local business, cleaning up local grot spots and the improvement of recycling facilities.
