Statement on Applying the Code of Practice for a well-managed Highway Infrastructure in Surrey

Over the past two years since the new code was released, workshops and project groups have met to discuss each of the 36 new recommendations in the code. These discussions captured good practice as well as identifying opportunities for operational improvements. Our officers have worked with other Local Authorities in the South East in order to benchmark each other's policies and procedures.

As a result of this work, we are satisfied that our policies and method of operation align with the risk-based approach (level of risk deciding the priority of works) within the new code's 36 recommendations.

We have put in place enhanced data collection and have scheduled regular evidence review procedures in order to monitor risk and identify any changing trends over time to see if any update in policy is required.

While we are satisfied that our policies align with the recommended risk-based approach, a report will be taken to Cabinet later in 2018 to make some changes to existing policy documents that were identified during the review. These policy changes will update and improve our existing policy.
