Policy for Inventory Collection

To contribute to Corporate and Community Plan aims of improving Environment and Transport, Health and Well being and economic prosperity, by maintaining access for the communities at large through complying with the Code of Practice for Maintenance Management. This will seek to improve the condition of the adopted roads and footpaths by establishing an inventory of all assets and their physical condition.

There is also a statutory duty to ensure that our roads and footways are maintained in a safe condition with regard to the volume and nature of traffic carried.

Well-maintained roads and footways will assist in creating a better environment for the community and assist residents and visitors alike to pursue and enjoy the social economic and leisure opportunities within the community.

In pursuit of the above we will do the following: -

  • Inventory collectionUndertake comprehensive data capture of all infrastructure assets, identifying type, condition and location.
  • Use ‘map-based’ data capture devices and other data capture means to ensure cost-effectiveness and efficiency.
  • Regularly maintain and update the inventory database so that it accurately reflects the physical nature and condition of the highway network, and informs the Authority’s Geographical Information System and Asset Management regime.
  • Transfer relevant paper records to digital format as resources permit.

  • Environment
