Help when on the Common
The Cambridge City StreetScene Team is responsible for a wide range of services on the Common including litter picking, grass cutting, graffiti removal and toilet cleaning. The Council's Enforcement Team can deal with problems of illegal camping or fires on the Common. The Pinder should be contacted if cattle escape from the Common or fall into the river. Trees are the responsibility of the Arboricultural Team. They can all be contacted through the Council's Customer Service Centre on 01223 457000 (0300 303 8389 out of office hours). It is an offence for anyone to drop litter or allow their dog to foul the Common - bins are provided for the disposal of litter and dog mess. Any problems with dogs should be referred to the Dog Warden on 01223 457898. Drug related incidents should be reported directly to the police - 999 for active drug taking or 101 for drug dealing. If you find spent needles or other drug debris call the Council hot line on 01223 458282 (0300 303 8389 out of office hours) or online at firstname.lastname@example.org.
