Considerate Contractor Streetworks Scheme


The Considerate Contractor Streetworks Scheme requires participating highway and utility contractors to abide by standards relating to safety, quality, and customer care when working on or adjacent to pavements and roads.

Birmingham City Council is committed to improving standards and making the City a Centre of Streetworks Excellence. The Council is working in partnership with everyone involved to achieve this goal, for the benefit of Birmingham citizens, businesses and visitors.

The Streetworks Code of Practice describes how Streetworks Performance will be measured and judged, and guides contractors towards achieving the required standard. There will be awards and recognition for achievement and sanctions for unsatisfactory performance.

The agreed standards are enforced by Lay Assessors who are members of the public who volunteer to perform random surveys of ongoing construction work and feed the results of these surveys back to the City Council, providing an invaluable snapshot of the way contractors are performing in our city.
