Big community offer

Highways your way: Local communities, local priorities

Very often in life a 'one-size fits all' approach just doesn't work, and our highways are no different. Gloucestershire has a diverse landscape from parishes of just a few hundred people, to large urban centres with more than a hundred thousand calling them home. To get the best deal for each community, Gloucestershire County Council has come up with a new way of working.

The basic offer

We will:

  • Maintain salt stocks and continue to keep Gloucestershire moving in bad weather
  • Inspect and maintain roads and repair the most serious potholes
  • Clean gullies on a programmed basis and investigate flooding
  • Repair faulty streetlights and traffic lights
  • Prioritise grass cutting
  • Maintain signs and remove street furniture that's not needed
  • Prioritise safety schemes at accident hot spots
  • Resurface worn out roads


This means in some areas of work we will be reducing levels of service and helping communities to do more for themselves through the Big Community Offer. The Big Community Offer 'Highways - Your Way' provides communities with the information and guidance to decide on the priorities for their area for highways. There are three elements of this offer:

  1. Community Action
  2. Community Match
  3. Community Top-up
