Asset management approach
Asset management is a strategic approach that seeks to optimise the value of highway assets over their whole life (Whole Life Cost). East Sussex County Council recognises that by taking an asset management based approach to its local highway maintenance, investment can be targeted on long-term planned activities that prevent expensive short-term repairs. This approach is in line with suggested best practice and Government guidance.
Our Asset Management approach not only maximises value for money, ensuring informed investment decisions can be made, but also manages risk and maintains a highway environment that is safe and secure and accessible for our customers.
