Highway Cleansing

The Council is the Primary Litter Authority and is responsible for keeping relevant land clear of litter and debris. This responsibility includes the A27 trunk road.

A change to the way that traffic management legislation is applied to work on the highway has meant that the previous litter clearance methodology is no longer adequate.

The report will outline proposals for a revised regime and request funding to provide an adequate frequency of cleansing for the remainder of 17/18 and budgetary provision for future years. (Recommendation to Council)
