Volunteer for highways and your community

A different way of delivering highways services with town and parish councils

Full details of how volunteer / community-led highways services can be run, including useful How-To-Guides, can be found in our Oxfordshire Together booklet (pdf format, 1Mb).

Services include:

  • Vegetation Cut Back
  • Weed Control
  • Sign Cleaning
  • Maintenance of Public Rights of Way
  • Provision of a School Crossing Patrol Officer
  • Grass cutting
  • Salt Bin Management & Snow Clearance 
  • Fix My Street Super User Volunteers
  • Community Tree Planting
  • Drain Clearance  
  • Autumn Clearance 
  • Spring Cleans 

We are working with many parish and town councils across the county to support them in managing and delivering different services relating to their local highways. 

Use of volunteers

Volunteers can be used to deliver many of these services. This can be done on an individual basis, for example if one person has an interest in providing a particular service or can be done by a group of volunteers overseen by a central coordinator. Training may be required to enable the individual/s to perform some tasks safely.

If you are a parish or town council contact the Volunteer Coordination Team.
