Divisional highway programme
What is a divisional highway programme?
Each county councillor has a divisional highway programme, which includes the opportunity to prioritise local highway issues. These priorities are reviewed twice a year.
The development of each programme of local priorities is led by the local county councillor and focuses on their division. They work closely with parish council and other local bodies, to make sure that local concerns are identified, and actions prioritised.
Why is it needed?
The local priorities programme is needed so that communities have more power and responsibility for issues in their areas, which allows the highways team to focus on delivering results more quickly.
