Highway Asset Management

A Highway Asset Management Plan (HAMP) identifies the current assets and develops a framework for asset management to enhance existing good practices and improve the management of the network. A HAMP is a guidance document used by the Council’s Highways service in managing the highway network as an asset and addressing maintenance challenges moving forward. In addition, the HAMP provides information regarding the highway asset base, its implications and identifies the need for funding that could be utilised in addressing maintenance issues. The HAMP also demonstrates to stakeholders how the Council manages highway assets and proposes to face the challenges of managing these assets in the future.
