Decision details


Decision Maker: Portfolio Holder for Environment

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No



The Environment Portfolio Holder agreed to an early decision in principle, to extend the Environmental Services Contracts with Veolia for a further 8 years (1st April 2027 to 31st March 2035) and that Officers should proceed to develop a package of efficiency and financial savings proposals for further consideration.


The Environment Portfolio Holder agreed that a formal decision report be presented for scrutiny by the Environment & Community Services PDS Committee at the March 2024 Committee meeting, so that Members could provide their comments on the proposals for the extension of the Veolia Environmental Services Contracts, that would be presented to the Executive at the March 2024 meeting.


Reasons for the decision:

The Veolia Environmental Services Contract Strategy report sought a decision in principle to extend the current Veolia Environmental Services Contracts beyond April 2027.


The financial size of the respective Environmental Services Contracts falls within the Council’s CPR thresholds and are therefore subject to long publication and procurement lead-in times. A decision to re-tender or extend these contracts beyond March 2027 would require a decision by the Executive at the March 2024 meeting.
