To approve an extension to the current
contract with Continental Landscapes
i. To extend the Street Cleansing and Grounds Maintenance contracts with CLL.
ii. To extend for five years from 1 October 2021 to 30 September 2026 plus two
further extensions to September 2028 of one year each subject to good
performance from October 2019 to September 2020 and October 2020 to
CLL have consistently provided good performance. As an output style contract joint
performance monitoring is carried out by CLL and the Environmental Services team
Excellent working relationship between client team and contractor, leading to good
operational understanding and an ability to work flexibly with CLL.
Lack of substantial reason to refuse an extension based on the terms and conditions
of the contracts.
Cost of tendering two significant contracts and the associated risk of financial
uncertainty if a new contract is tendered.
Re-tendering both contracts. This would absorb significant officer time and cost to
the council when there is no reason to do so.
