To outline proposals for additional capital
expenditure on street cleansing equipment.
Consideration was given to the report that detailed that as part of the Budget and Council Tax 2018/19 £610,000 of Priority Capital Investment monies were identified for ‘Street Cleansing Equipment and Bins’. This investment was intended for service improvements for cleansing and bins with options for Solar Compactor Bins to be explored.
This report, therefore, sought approval to spend £408,500of this allocation on a range of capital investments in street cleansing equipment and bins, balancing the need for short-term investment in ‘traditional’ approaches, and the longer term need to assess more innovative approaches to litter bin provision. In particular, the project sought to pilot the provision of solar litter bins, in order to assess their potential to support wider investment in litter bin provision, via the delivery of efficiencies in operational street cleansing services and increased advertising revenues.
Resolved:- (1) That £408,500 of Capital Expenditure be released for investment in Street Cleansing Equipment and Bins.
(2) That the proposed approach to expenditure of the Capital Investment in Street Cleansing Equipment and Bins be approved, as outlined in Section 4.10 to 4.13 below.
(3) That the Assistant Director of Community Safety and Street Scene be authorised to make all necessary arrangements for the delivery of the proposed approach, in consultation with the Cabinet Member for Cleaner, Greener Communities.
