The Good, The Bad & The Ugly is an idea taken from other Civic Trusts which encourages their residents to make comments or give opinions on their environment.

The Good can be anything that is pleasing, either abstract such as a community service or visual such as a well designed shop window display or a pleasing landscape feature.

The Bad, again can be abstract or visual, such as a lack of car parking or a poorly designed road layout are an example of each.

The Ugly is very much a visual aspect, examples of which can be derelict land/buildings, overgrown landscapes, features not in keeping with the local area.

The results for 2017 are given below.

It is our intention to run The Good, The Bad & The Ugly as an annual event which will be open to all members of the Littleborough community (whether in the Littleborough Civic Trust or not). Submissions for 2018 can begin in September and finish by the end of the year; the results to be published in January 2019.
