How you can help get potholes repaired

There’s a simple way to get Devon County Council to repair Clayhidon’s potholed roads – and everyone in the parish can play a part, says parish councillor Graham Langford.

If there is a pothole in your vicinity 40mm deep,  with a vertical edge and at least 300mm wide , simply  go online via this link and mark the spot on the map.

If it is not repaired, go online and report it again and again, says Graham. Every report is logged  and his  theory is “in the end they will get so fed up with logging it they will come out and fix it.”

There are many isolated deep craters, but parish councillors agreed that the worst stretch is between in the parish hall and Hidewood Farm, which former councillor Alan Redwood described as “almost impassable “. Sat its meeting on 19 February the council decided to make this the priority when it approach Dave Ashford, Devon CC’s new man in charge of maintenance in this district.
