Highway policy overview

We recognise how important the local highway network is. We are committed to ensuring that we have the best highway possible.

You can read an overview of what we plan to achieve and how we hope to achieve it through our third Local Transport Plan.

Highway Policies

Many of the tasks carried out by East Sussex Highways are statutory duties or powers defined by national legislation. The highway policies set out our position where local discretion can be used, or in areas for which there is no legislation.

The policies also support and enable the delivery of the East Sussex Council Plan and Priorities, and the Local Transport Plan.

Review cycle

The policies are reviewed regularly to ensure they are accurate and consider continuing feedback and changes in working practices.

We welcome any feedback you may have.

If you have any questions or comments about our policies or would like to request a printed copy, please contact the service.
