Every year, the County Council provides funding for small-scale projects to improve our local highways. This is known as the Local Highways Initiative, and it provides funding for small projects costing up to £10,000.
Projects which are allocated funding must show that they improve road safety, create lasting improvement, and also have the support of the community. Examples of projects are new/improved signage, repairing road surfacing, new road markings and planting.
How can we improve the highways near you? If you have any ideas for how we could improve the roads near you, please get in touch via email or by adding your suggestion to bit.ly/roadimprovement
The deadline for these projects is the end of July, so we have time to establish the feasibility of a project before making a bid.
Cheney and Valerie are very keen to hear your thoughts and ideas – please do get in touch.
