The Road Management Plan has been developed in accordance with the Road Management Act 2004. It defines which public roads will be maintained and sets the standards and levels of service for the management and maintenance of assets within the road reserve, subject to the available Council funds.

Council maintains all the local roads that are on Council road register and sections of roads between the back of kerb and building line on arterial roads.
