Asset management

Asset management ensures that we maintain and properly look after our assets.

Northumberland County has prepared a comprehensive Asset Management Plan which details information about core infrastructure assets (roads, bridges, large culverts, retaining walls and storm sewers) and how to make the best possible investment decisions.  

The Asset Management Plan enables County staff to make informed decisions regarding the operation, maintenance, renewal, replacement and disposal of our critical infrastructure assets. This plan allows us to budget for any repairs or replacement of assets without incurring any surprise expenses well into the future.
