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: -
- Undertake 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
This policy has cross cutting themes and complements and links
with the following Corporate Objectives
and Policy Standards: -
