Social Value Act Survey Results

The Council recently agreed to seek bids from external suppliers to see if better value might be achieved in the provision of services including refuse and recycling collection, garden waste collection, street cleaning and litter collection.

As part of this process the council sought the view of local residents and business on what economic, social and environmental benefits might be included in any contracts for provision of these services. The six week consultation took place from 9 November to 18 December. 84 responses were received and the results are detailed below. 

The results will help to inform the Council's approach to the tendering process that will commence in early 2016. Thank you for taking part.
