Vegetation Clearance in Talaton
Talaton Parish Council have secured funding through the Highway Maintenance Community Enhancement Fund to assist with general highway related maintenance throughout the parish.
Following a public consultation in 2014, a change in policy was agreed. Devon County Council carry out grass-cutting on highway verges in areas that are key to maintaining visibility, such as at junctions, laybys, and the inside of bends.
The parish council have been proactive in carrying out highway work, which has involved vegetation clearance around benches, shelters, dog bins and the bank adjacent to Orchard Close. The work has helped to keep footpaths safe for pedestrians, improves visibility and helps to promote a tidy village.
