North Devon MP Nick Harvey welcomes extra cash for region's roads
North Devon MP Nick Harvey has welcomed government funding of over £9 million to renew and repair Devon’s roads.
The extra capital funding comes as part of a £215m national package to extend the life of roads across the country.
Devon's £9.252 million share will come over the next two years, with DCC receiving just over £6 million this coming financial year and around £3.2m in 2014/15.
Severe weather in July left Devon with a clean-up and repair bill in excess of £5m, and a further £3m worth of damage was caused in November.
In support of Armed Forces Day at the end of June we are offering £9.99 Family/Portrait Photographic sittings to anyone who holds a Police/Military I.D card! That's a saving of £25.01! Ends July 31/13
Terms: You must show proof of I.D when booking your shoot and pay £9.99 to hold your booking date and time. Only one shoot per family. A viewing day will be held roughly one week from the shooting date.

Valid until: Wednesday, July 31 2013
Following the government’s announcement, Mr Harvey said: “This extra financial support is extremely welcome after North Devon’s roads were hit particularly hard this year by flooding, as well as successive harsh winters.
“With over 8,000 miles of roads to maintain, Devon needs consistent financial support in this area. 2011’s one-off Winter Damage Grant payment from the Department for Transport was put to extremely good use and so today’s funding announcement will ensure that this vital work can continue.”
