Safer Cleaner Greener Teams

Safer Cleaner Greener Teams work with communities to reduce crime and disorder.

Safer Cleaner Greener Teams focus their work towards the action plan for the Safer and Stronger Communities Partnership. This is to address problems specific to the local areas that they cover.

There are four teams who work across the Borough:

Team Areas covered
Upper Valley Calder, Luddendenfoot, Ryburn and Todmorden.
Lower Valley Brighouse, Elland, Greetland and Stainland, Hipperholme and Lightcliffe and Rastrick.
Halifax Central Park, Skircoat, Sowerby Bridge and Town.
Halifax North and East Illingworth & Mixenden, Northowram and Shelf, Ovenden and Warley.


Each Team is lead by a senior officer/manager from one of the following agencies:

  • Calderdale Council.
  • West Yorkshire Police.
  • Together Housing.

The core membership is as follows:

  • Senior manager (Chair).
  • Neighbourhood Policing Team Inspector.
  • Primary Care Trust.
  • Local Authority ( Community Safety, Youth Services, Parks and Streetscene, Environmental Health).
  • Together Housing.
  • West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service.

In Halifax North and East and Halifax Central the teams are mainly supported by the Neighbourhood Management Initiatives for the areas. The Upper and Lower Valley teams are supported by two Community Development Workers per area.

Other members are enlisted on an ad hoc basis to support their work, develop ideas and projects and share good practice.

Structure and accountability

Safer Cleaner Greener Teams are accountable to the Safer and Stronger Communities Delivery Group which is made up of senior managers from the partner agencies.

The Delivery Group reports to the Safer and Stronger Communities Executive which is made up of the most senior representatives of partner agencies, Government Office and Elected Members.
