Case Study

PPE, Signs/Barriers & Drainage Works in Ugborough

Ugborough Parish Council received funding over two years under the Highway Maintenance Community Enhancement Fund (HMCEF).

They used the funding to purchase Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) for volunteers and to purchase highway warning signs and barriers.  The funding also contributed towards contractor costs to clear drains and buddle holes.

A buddle hole is a hole or pipe that carries water through a hedge or bank.  Devon County Council currently clear these annually on the main road network.  However, those on the minor network are cleared by the parish lengthsman, due to resource it is not always possible for all features to be attended.

The work undertaken by the parish council has helped to reduce the risk of flooding within the parish.
