Information about our policy, strategy and plans for maintaining highways assets in Coventry.
An asset management approach is being used to ensure that available budgets are spent in the most effective and efficient way to provide a best value service for maintaining Coventry’s highways.
Further details of our approach are contained in the documents below:
Coventry's Asset Management Policy is a high level document which establishes the Council's commitment to highway infrastructure asset management and demonstrates how the asset management approach aligns with the City's corporate vision and objectives. As a result all asset management stakeholders have a line of sight between highway asset management and the high level direction of the Council.
This Asset Management Strategy sets out how the Asset Management Policy will be delivered. It is informed by the adoption of the asset management framework which establishes the activities and processes that are necessary to develop, document, implement and potentially continually improve the highway asset management service within Coventry City Council. This Strategy is aligned to the City's corporate objectives and seeks to follow the latest asset management advice, particularly from the Highway Maintenance Efficiency Programme (HMEP) led by the highway sector and supported by the Department for Transport (DfT).
The Highways Asset Management Plan is the link between our strategic objectives and our operational activities, it will enable this authority to meet strategic goals in the most effective manner having regard to statutory requirements, customer expectations and funding limitations.
This Council has statutory duties and an aspiration to manage its physical assets to a level that ensures the desired standards of service are achieved and maintained over time in an efficient and cost-effective manner.
The Highways Infrastructure Asset Management Plan (HIAMP) is currently under review and updated to reflect the 36 recommendations of the 2016 Well Managed Highway Infrastructure, a Code of Practice (CoP). This work is expected to be completed by Autumn 2018, with the revised HIAMP published Summer 2019.
