To provide further support to our local communities an additional £100,000.00 fund, for Town and Parish Councils, was available in 2021/22. The fund was for projects/works that would enhance the public realm, which includes the repair and refurbishment of highway street furniture, such as lighting columns, finger posts, seats, and bollards.
