Terms of Reference
To advise the Director of Highways on standards to be applied and procedures to be adopted to achieve high aesthetic quality of design for bridges and associated structures and to promulgate general guidance on such matters.
To scrutinise individual design proposals for bridges and associated structures from the aesthetic visual and greening points of view and to accept proposals or recommend design revisions on behalf of the Director of Highways.
To refer design proposals to the Director of Highways on which disagreement is found to be irreconcilable either:
in principle, because for instance a design is likely to result in disproportionate damage to sensitive historic, scenic, ecological or other environmental features; or
in detail, because for instance the proposed layout, style or surface finishes are considered to be inappropriate.
