Highway Maintenance in Ilfracombe
Ilfracombe Town Council employ a town maintenance operative, whose role includes keeping the town tidy and free from weeds, cutting grass verges, pruning trees, clearing drains and filling minor potholes. A group of volunteers also carry out minor works under supervision.
A grant of £1618.00 was awarded from the Highway Maintenance Community Enhancement Fund (HMCEF) to enable the council to purchase personal protective equipment (PPE), a lawn mower, tools and materials to carry out work undertaken by both the town maintenance operative and volunteers.
An example of the works undertaken is the removal of overgrown vegetation along St Brannocks Road.
