Tools and Equipment – Clayhidon Parish Council

side of road, with tools and a drrainage pipe

Clayhidon Parish Council received funding over two financial years through the Highway Maintenance Community Enhancement Fund (HMCEF).

The funding enabled the parish to purchase tools, equipment and signage for highway related works within the parish, particularly those works that Devon County Council are unable to do due to funding or policy.

The attached photos show the installation of a new drainage pipe to help the flow of water in an area that was previously prone to flooding.
