Development of Highways, Drainage and Public Lighting Schemes – 2018-19

August 2017

The Council is developing its proposed maintenance works for highways, drainage and public lighting for delivery during the 2018-19 financial year, using a prioritisation process to identify those streets most in need of repair.

We would welcome your input into the process, by sharing any knowledge of defective areas of the network and submitting details including the following:

  •   The name of the street, location and the extents
  •   The problem/defect, for example, poor condition of the carriageway/footway, drainage issue or lighting problem. Please provide photographs where possible
  •   Any suggestions you may have for improving or fixing the problem/issue

A Highways Review Panel has been created to scrutinise the selection of proposed works with panel members representing a cross section of amenity societies and residents associations. The panel will ensure that the prioritisation process is robust and transparent. For ease of reference, please find attached the proposed works list for the current 2017-18 financial year.

To view our agreed list of works for the 2017-18 financial year, please access our website:


To maximise the likely receptiveness to the suggestions for our area, please send your suggestions to Paul Newman, our society’s Highways representative who will consolidate them as well as ensure individual responses are visible. Paul’s email is: [email protected]
