Maintaining roads

Self help and community support

Community self-help schemes give town and parish councils and community self-help groups the opportunity to take control of small local maintenance tasks; allowing them to manage local volunteers and maintain their own local area.

How you can get involved

  • Snow Warden scheme – trained volunteers who act as a key contact between the local community and DCC during severe weather.
  • Parish Paths Partnership (P3) – a scheme to help people improve the condition of their local rights of way.
  • Highway Self-Help scheme – trained volunteers who complete minor works at a safe distance from the public highway.
  • Community Road Warden scheme – trained volunteers who complete minor maintenance works in the vicinity of the public highway within their community.
