The Keep Wales Tidy, Local Environmental Audit and Management System (LEAMS) validation survey.

The surveys are undertaken in each Local Authority in Wales, between April 2011 and March 2012. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

These surveys provide a “snap shot” of litter and other local environmental quality indicators, for each Local Authority area in Wales. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

A Cleanliness Index (CI) is calculated for Wales, each Local Authority and each zone within each Local Authority, using the information from the surveys. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

An in depth explanation of the criteria can be found here ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The CI is also calculated for Zones 1, 2 and 3 as defined in the Code of Practice on Litter and Refuse 1999. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

These are: ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Zone 1 – Town centres, shopping centres, major transport centres, central car parks.
Zone 2 – High density residential areas, busy recreational areas, suburban car parks.
Zone 3 – Low density residential areas, industrial estates ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
