Civil Enforcement (Parking) Contract Review

Decision status: For Determination

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The Director of Economic Growth and Neighbourhood Services submitted a report seeking approval for an extension of the current contract for civil enforcement (parking) and providing an update on work to review parking services.


The report noted that the current contract with NSL Ltd had commenced in November 2014 for an initial term of five years and extensions of a period or periods of not less than one year up to an additional five years.  At its meeting on 14 January 2019 the Committee had agreed an extension for a one-year period commencing in November 2019 (Minute 63 refers). Over the past 12 months officers had carried out a Parking Services Fundamental Service Review (FSR) and a review of the current parking services market supported by advice from specialist parking consultants.  The report summarised the proposed actions arising from the FSR, as well as contract improvements for the current extension period which had been implemented and reviewed.


The report explained that it was proposed to prepare a new specification and contract for Civil Enforcement based on the changing parking services market conditions, but that it would not be possible to deliver a new contract prior to the expiry of the current contract extension with NSL.  A further one-year extension to the contract was therefore recommended.


Resolved –


          That a one-year extension to the contract for Civil Enforcement with NSL Ltd from 1 November 2020 - 31 October 2021 be agreed in accordance with the terms of the contract.
