The Environment & Natural Resources Directorate would like to advise the public that applications can now be made for funding for District and Community roads. Funding is limited, but for every successful application, a grant of up to £2,500 can be provided. Residents will be expected to take responsibility for organising individual road improvements.
Community roads are defined as those that serve a minimum of three households. A District road is defined as a road serving six or more occupied properties (and may have previously received funding as a Community road).
The priorities for District and Community roads include the number of existing dwellings served and the current condition of the road.
Application forms are available from Essex House and should be completed and returned by noon on Tuesday 30 June 2015.
All applications received will then be assessed, scored, and prioritised accordingly.
