This report introduces our updated Highway
Asset Management Policy and Strategy.
1) That Committee approve the updated Highway Asset Management Policy and Strategy 2023-2025 which will enable the Council to maintain its DfT Incentive Fund banding and associated Local Transport Plan funding.
2) That Committee notes the need for further investment, including capital funding for preventative maintenance programmes, across all asset groups in order to support active, accessible and sustainable travel throughout the city and to reduce the future burden on the revenue and carbon cost of reactive maintenance including pothole repairs.
3) That Committee agrees that officers should identify an annual capital sum from within existing capital budgets to fund preventative maintenance for footways, carriageways and street lighting over the next 10 years to manage the rising revenue cost of providing highway safety maintenance.
