The Community Maintenance Scheme

This scheme provides County Councillors and Parish Councils with access to a mobile two-man Highway Crew who will undertake highway maintenance activities for their constituency. The scheme runs between April and November. The highway maintenance activities can be to:

  • clean sign faces and bollard reflectors
  • straighten sign posts, verge posts/bollards
  • clear drainage gully grill and grips
  • prune/strim overhanging & intrusive vegetation
  • tidy up footways (vegetation siding and re-bed loose slabs/setts)
  • reset loose kerbs and gully grills
  • fill small holes in road/footway

How it Works

County Councillors and Parish Councils identify the length of road and highway maintenance activities to their Local Highway Manager. The Local Highway Manager creates a schedule of prioritised work for the Community Maintenance Gang. The Community Maintenance Gang will focus on the schedule of work but can also raise additional work on site for approval from the Local Highways Manager.

The benefits

This scheme helps to:

  • engage with County Councillors and Parish Councils about their local highway issues
  • meet local demand for basic maintenance activities
  • maintain a rolling programme of maintenance activity between April and November
