for a seven-year term to September 2017.? However, in 2017 the
Council enacted a three-year extension to the contract extending
the term to September 2020. At which point a further one-year
extension was enacted taking the current contract term to 15th
There is provision in the current contract for it to be extended for up to a further three years to September 2024 without the council having to undertake a formal competitive tendering process.
