The Environment & Natural Resources Directorate would like to advise the public that applications can now be made for funding for district and community roads.

Every successful application will receive a grant of up to £2,500 for raw materials and hire of a roller. Residents will be responsible for spreading the materials and carrying out necessary works.

The criteria for district and community road funding include the number of existing dwellings served and the condition of the road in question. 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.

Application forms can be collected from Essex House, Jamestown, and should be completed and returned by noon on Friday, 28 September 2018. All applications received at that time will then be assessed, scored, and prioritised accordingly.

All previous unsuccessful applicants are encouraged to re-apply for a community or district road grant.
