Highway Asset Management Plan

The council has recently approved a Highway Asset Management Plan which means:

  • we will record and report how we will manage our highway assets
  • we will commit to establishing affordable standards within current agreed budgets
  • we will communicate to the public about what highway asset service to expect

The implementation of the HAMP will support:

  • the need to manage budget pressures
  • the aims of the Council’s Corporate plan 2016-2021

Note: The HAMP only related to the council’s obligations as a Highway Authority and therefore only includes those assets on the publicly adopted highway. Private streets and roads transferred to social landlords are not included the extents of the adopted highway are available via the Council’s web site.
