Adoption or not adoption

The Hartlepool Mail Story about the Council adopting the Marina Car Parks (see here) has lead me to put down the following question for Full council next Thursday

To Councillor Peter Jackson

I had always been under the impression that it was the responsibility of a developer to bring roads and infastructure up to an acceptable standard before they were aopted by Hartlepool Council. By adopting the roads in the Marina area when they are of "very poor standard" are we not saying to developers that they need not worry about the roads in any development they are involved with as the Council will step in and spend whatever is necessary to bring them up to standard?
