Review of Driven Carriageway Inspections during Covid-19 (2)

Decision Maker: Corporate Director of Business and Environmental Services

Decision status: Recommendations approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


i. The recommendations in para 9.1 (i-iii) of the report of 18 December 2020 listed in Para 4.4 (i-iii) above remain in place
ii. That ongoing monitoring of the situation is undertaken over the coming months and a further review concluded in order that an update position and recommendations can be reported to your meeting of 22 October 2021 (unless deemed necessary to be undertaken sooner). This would enable an informed decision to be taken at a time where winter service duties are also required of Highway Officers and the timing of this next review also be coincidental with the end of British Summer time.

Reasons for the decision:

The intention is to minimise the risk to the Council’s employees by adhering to the Government requirement for social distancing and so that highway inspections are carried out within Public Health England Guidelines during the emergency period.
