Ditch Clearing and Pothole Repairs in Bradford and Cookbury
Bradford and Cookbury Parish Council received funding from the Highway Maintenance Community Enhancement Fund (HMCEF). The sum of £1000.00 was approved and the parish council used the money to hire equipment to enable ditch clearing to be undertaken.
They also purchased Permanent Pothole Repair material for non-intervention pothole defects throughout the parish.
Devon County Council policy requires potholes that are 40mm deep and 300mm in any horizontal direction with a vertical edge to be repaired. The parish council can deal with any potholes that do not meet this criteria.
In order for the parish to be able to repair non-intervention potholes, they signed up to the Road Warden Scheme which allows communities to organise and carry out minor works either on or off the live carriageway. More information on the Road Warden Scheme can be found here.
