Highway Maintenance – Farringdon, North Molton and Lifton
A number of parishes have received funding from HMCEF and have used this to carry out maintenance works and improvements to their local communities.
Farringdon Parish Council received funding from the HMCEF to purchase Permanent Pothole Repair material and contribute towards to the employment of a contractor to undertake non-intervention pothole repairs throughout the parish.
Lifton and Milton Abbot Parish Councils received a joint grant towards the employment of a contractor to clear weeds and to remove litter in the villages of Lifton and Chillaton.
The work undertaken has improved the appearance of both villages and prevented the use of chemical weed killer.
North Molton Parish Council received funding through the HMCEF towards the cost of employing a contractor to undertake weed spraying, hedge trimming and drainage works within the parish.
The works undertaken will reduce the risk of flooding, provide a safer road network and provide tidier public spaces for the use of the community.
