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 will be provided. Residents will be responsible for organising 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 which 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 condition of the road.
Application forms can be collected from Essex House in Jamestown and should be completed and returned by noon on Thursday 30 June 2016. All applications received at that time will then be assessed and scored, and prioritised accordingly.
All previous unsuccessful applicants must re-apply for a Community or District Road Grant.
