Sign Maintenance in Drewsteignton
Drewsteignton Parish Council received funding through the Highway Maintenance Community Enhancement Fund (HMCEF) towards the replacement of 4 sign posts and the repair and cleaning of several others within the parish.
Due to funding and resources, Devon County Council are no longer to offer a number of services, focussing on safety issues as priority.
The parish council have therefore taken action with volunteers to carry out these works. The improved signage benefits both the community and visitors alike and has improved the overall look of the area.
