Case Study

Vegetation Clearance in North Tawton

wall on side of road cleared from weeds bramble and earth

North Tawton Town Council received funding through the HMCEF to clear a wall and hedge free from weeds, brambles and earth accumulation to make the road safer for pedestrians to use.

This work has tidied this area of the town and improved road safety for those using it.  Devon County Council policy would not require any action to be undertaken to this area so the town council took action.
