Decision details

Street Lighting Life Cycle Plan

Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No


The Highways Asset Management Framework, approved in December 2016, sets out the Authorities approach to managing its assets. For the major asset groups Life Cycle Plans are required to ensure long-term plans for managing an asset grouping are produced with the aim of providing the required levels of service at the lowest whole life cost.


As part of the Department for Transport Self-Assessment process, each authority is required to score themselves against 22 questions and then place themselves into one of 3 Bands on the basis of the available evidence.  From 2017/18 onwards only Band 3 authorities will receive their full allocation.  Band 2 authorities will receive 90% of their allocation whilst Band 1 authorities will receive 60%.


This street lighting life cycle plan is one of a number of documents currently being produced to support the next self-assessment exercise which is due to take place in January 2017. 



County Councillor John Fillis, the Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport approved the Street Lighting Life Cycle Plan as set out at Appendix 'A'.
