Any resident can request the help of the Highway Rangers – simply submit the details of the area or item you would like to see tidied up, and its location, to your local town or parish council by letter or e-mail.
Make sure you include your own contact details so they can get back to you in the event they need more information.
They may have already included a request to tidy the area or item you have in mind in their on-going maintenance programme. But if not, they can e-mail your request to the Highway Rangers and, if it’s within the scope of their operations, it will be approved for action.
The Rangers are there to provide a service which can help make your village or town even more attractive for residents and visitors – so take advantage of them!
Please note – the Rangers are only permitted to tidy up on land owned by Essex County Council’s Highways Department or your parish council. They cannot act on private land.
