Policies, Strategies and Plans

7. Emergencies and network resilience

We recognise the impact that emergency events such as extreme weather can have on highway assets and on economic growth within the County.

We will consider how various emergency events such as intense or prolonged rainfall, hotter temperatures and higher wind speed will impact on the type of highway assets we manage, the likelihood of these events occurring and the response that is required to ensure that the highway network is safe for its users.

The Council will provide a Winter Service that, as far as is reasonably practicable, keeps congestion, delays and incidents to a minimum. An annual Winter Service Plan will be published that details the County’s approach to maintaining the network in winter.
