FOI Request - Pothole Criteria and Repair Regime

Request 101003326825

1) Has the council moved to a risk based approach when it comes to fixing potholes? If so, when did this happen? Ideally, month/year but if not possible just year?

2) What is your safety inspection regime in terms of checking roads?

3) How do you classify road defects? Do you have a guide for this?

4) Do you have any guidance on when a repair needs to be made? ie) how big does a defect need to get?

5) What is your intervention/investigatory criteria specifically for potholes? Has this changed? Could you provide me with the previous criteria, if so?
