To receive a final report on Members request to investigate the possibility of introducing contracted out enforcement duties to an external provider.
The Group had before it, and NOTED, a *report from the Operations Manager Street Scene and Open Spaces which contained a review of private/external enforcement.
The Officer explained that Members had requested in 2020 that the Council looked into external enforcement as the perception was that the Council did not actively enforce breaches.
He explained that Officers had actively engaged with a number of companies to provide quotations for both cost neutral and chargeable services.
It was therefore AGREED that Officers did not pursue further investigations on external enforcement at this time.
Note: *Report previously circulated and attached to the minutes.
