Issue details

Highways Management Plan

The current Highway Maintenance Plan was approved in 2009. Since then there have been many changes within the highway sector; including changes to the level of available finance and changes to the way the highway assets are maintained, with a move towards a risk based prioritisation approach.


Changes to policies and codes of practice have previously been reported to and approved by Cabinet or Cabinet Member and the Highway Maintenance Plan, to be renamed Highways Management Plan, is proposed to be updated to consolidate these changes.


It is therefore proposed to update, rename and publish the plan to reflect the changes already approved by Cabinet to individual policies and codes of practice and reflect new industry standards and the 'Well-Managed Highway Infrastructure: A Code of Practice'. It is proposed that this be delegated to the Director of Property Services in consultation with the Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport. Where there are any additional policy or code of practice changes with significant implications for the county council these will be brought to Cabinet for approval and published separately as part of the Highways Management Plan.
